Abu Dhabi, Jul 24: Visitors to Abu Dhabi International Airport will be forgiven for thinking they’ve landed on the set of Jurassic Park.
Einstein, a 23-metre, 4.5-tonne skeleton of an Apatosaurus, arrived at the airport earlier this week and will spend the next two-and-a-half months on display in the Arrivals Hall in Terminal One.
Discovered in Dakota, United States, Einstein has been carefully transported in ten cargo crates. The exhibition will be officially open to the public from next week and will run until the end of September.
Dan Cappell, vice president of non-aeronautical revenue at Abu Dhabi Airports Company, said: “Einstein is an incredible relic from prehistoric times and provides a great educational opportunity for children and their families.”
