PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Dinosaurs have made their way to Maine. A brand new exhibition at the Portland Science Center showcases what it was like when dinosaurs roamed the earth.

'Dinosaurs Unearthed' features life-like interactive dinosaurs, fossils and even dinosaur themed artwork by a local artist. This is the first time the family friendly attraction has been to New England.

"It's the sort of thing you have heard about all your life and you've never really had the chance to experience. It's something people want to see," said Joe Gold, President of the Portland Science Center.

The exhibition opens on Friday and will remain open until early spring. If you would like to buy tickets or learn more about 'Dinosaurs Unearthed' click here.
