Dino Island was a one-of-a-kind exhibit that combined the excitement of animatronic dinosaurs with modern-day settings and jobs. The exhibit featured a range of dinosaurs, including T-Rex, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and more, each in their unique work environment. For example, children could see a T-Rex working as a chef, a Stegosaurus working as a construction worker, or a Triceratops working as a doctor.

The exhibit was designed to provide a hands-on and interactive experience for children, allowing them to explore and learn in a fun and engaging way. In addition to the animatronic dinosaurs, the exhibit also included educational materials such as informational panels, interactive games, and hands-on activities.

Dino Island was a collaborative effort between the Miami Children's Museum and a team of expert designers, animators, and educators. The project required extensive planning and coordination, as well as specialized knowledge and skills in animatronics and exhibit design. The result was a unique and innovative exhibit that captivated children and adults alike, and provided a valuable educational experience for visitors of all ages.
