UTV's Frank Mitchell visited the museum to get a special preview of what museum-goers are in for in a special programme.
The extensive and interactive exhibition opens to the public on Friday at the Ulster Museum.
The 'Age of the Dinosaur' is a fully interactive journey through the world in which dinosaurs lived, and includes life-sized moving dinosaurs and 60 unique specimens, including real bones from the ancient creatures.
Visitors will be transported into the environments of 65 to 250 million years ago to experience the habitats of dinosaurs, including a Jurassic underwater zone home to its own marine monsters.
They will be also be allowed to get hands-on with original fossils including giant leg bones, skulls and dinosaur eggs and there are activities for children including a special 'dino dig' where get the opportunity to be a palaeontologist.
National Museums NI's Director of Collections and Interpretation, Dr Jim McGreevy, said it was a major coup for the Ulster Museum to bring this world-class exhibition to Northern Ireland.
He said: "This is one of the most outstanding dinosaur exhibitions ever to come to the Ulster Museum. It's set to thrill and excite our visitors as the seven full-scale robotic dinosaurs swing into action!"
Jan English, Head of Touring Exhibitions at the National History Museum, said: "The exhibition combines stunning imagery, animatronic dinosaurs and over 60 specimens from the Museum's world renowned collections.
"We are delighted to have the opportunity to showcase this exciting exhibition to audiences in Northern Ireland just prior to launching the international tour of the exhibition to venues worldwide."
To launch this special exhibition, the Ulster Museum will host 'Dinosaurs at Night' and will stay open until 9pm on Friday. The exhibition runs until 16 September.
