Display in Guest Relations at Universal Studios Hollywood Features Prop Display from ‘Jurassic Park’ and ‘Shrek’ Series

There’s a hidden gem located in the Guest Relations Department at Universal Studios Hollywood — a huge prop display from fan-favorite Universal films like “Shrek” and the “Jurassic Park” series is tucked away here.

Props and Art from the ‘Jurassic Park’ Franchise

The “Jurassic Park” collections features props from almost every movie in the franchise. From Dr. Alan Grant’s signature hat to a Pteranodon head for visual effects.

Dr. Alan Grant’s Fedora – ‘Jurassic Park III’

This dusty fedora has survived several Velociraptor attacks, one plane crash, and an epic Spinosaurus/T-Rex battle. The singe marks and stains certainly reflect it.

Visual Effects Pteranodon Head – ‘Jurassic World’

The Pteranodon head was used in “Jurassic World” by animators for visual effects purposes. The head has a red crest and mask, as well as a beak full of teeth.

Ian Malcolm’s “God Creates Dinosaurs” – ‘Jurassic World’

Instead of writing about the ‘Chaos Theory’, Ian Malcolm has been busy writing a book about his experience in “Jurassic Park”. The prop was first used in “Jurassic World”.

Baby Stegosaurus Maquette – ‘The Lost World: Jurassic Park’

Sarah Harding, who was first introduced in “The Lost World,” gets up close and personal with a cute baby stego (causing the mommy stego to go ballistic). The baby stego’s maquette can be seen on display here.

Hatched Dinosaur Eggs – ‘Jurassic Park’

Dr. Alan Grant’s biggest ‘Uh Oh’ moment was when he picked up the hatched dinosaur eggs in a place where they absolutely shouldn’t be. The broken shells are now on display.

Barbasol Can with Embryo Storage – ‘Jurassic Park’

“Dodgson! I got Dodgson here!” said Nedry, several days before total disaster. Nedry was given a Barbasol can with a secret compartment for hiding dinosaur embryos, which he was hired to steal by Hammond’s competitor.

Hammond’s Bamboo Cane – ‘The Lost World: Jurassic Park’

Hammond’s iconic bamboo cane topped with a mosquito-inhabited amber is also among this collection.

Concept Art and Maquettes From ‘Shrek’

The next collection comes from the first film from the “Shrek” franchise.

Donkey Character Design – ‘Shrek’
