Featured Exhibits

Dinosaur Mysteries

In the Dinosaur Mysteries exhibit you’re the paleontologist. Over a dozen full size dinosaurs roam this exhibit hall. Walk under, over, and through a landscape filled with dig pits, a field lab, excavation sites, and other areas of discovery.

The Shed

Come see what we’re making today! Learn a new skill, create an invention and find a solution to a design challenge through drop-in activities each day as well as different events and programs throughout the year.


SciLab is a real laboratory environment where visitors become scientists— donning lab coats and safety goggles and conducting experiments at stations throughout the lab.
