The latest exhibit to open there, called “Dinosaurs in Motion,” features 14 interactive, life-sized metal dinosaur sculptures. It blends science and art, exploring everything from sketching to robotics.

“If Capital Region parents, grandparents, educators and scout leaders are looking for a way to keep youth engaged and their minds active this summer, there isn’t a better place to inspire them with hands-on education and entertainment,” said Teddy Foster, UPH director. “And the adults will get just as much out of it as the kids.”

The narrative of the exhibit follows the story of the artist John Payne, who was inspired by the universal interest in dinosaurs and dedicated much of his career to creating metal kinetic sculptures of the creatures. His positive message of “If you can dream it, you can do it,” is threaded throughout “Dinosaurs in Motion.”

The exhibit will run through Oct. 17.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for children. For more information, visit universalpreservationhall.org.
