An exhibition 'Dinosaurs Alive' has opened at the Ulster Museum in Belfast.

It's 65 million years since the roar of dinosaurs was last heard but the American designed 'Dinosaurs Alive' exhibition at the Ulster Museum has brought them back to earth.

The dinosaurs have been brought back to life using computer-controlled technology. BBC Television presenter Andy Crane visited the exhibition accompanied by primary school children from Derry and Antrim. Visitors also get the chance to play dinosaur themed computer games as well as designing their own dinosaurs.

Sally Montgomery of the Ulster Museum spoke to RTÉ News about the Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus, Allosaurus, and Deinonychus dinosaurs.

The exhibition cost £250,000 to stage and runs until the end of September 1992.

An RTÉ News report broadcast on 2 June 1992. The reporter is Michael Fisher.
