Jurassic Park is one of the most iconic series of all time. Therefore, I clicked on this article right away when I saw I remember watching it for the first time and being absolutely fascinated by all the wonders of this world, where dinosaurs are revived and become, once again, valuable inhabitants of this planet. Its soundtrack was the first thing that caught my attention. It was just so grand and beautiful that I had to watch the movies. They blew me away completely and when my orchestra at school decided to play a suite from that piece I was literally the most excited human being on this planet. I practiced day and night for it on my clarinet, trying to sound perfect.
Anyways, I also think it is an interesting choice to put the exhibit at the Field Museum in Chicago. If I remember correctly, the world famous SUE the T.Rex is also on display at Field. It will be interesting for the audience if the museum somehow integrates SUE into the Jurassic Park exhibit. This way, in the same exhibit, the fantasy will meet the reality, and the past will meet the future.
