Description Goes Here

Step into the world of prehistoric predators and plant eaters

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.

Exhibit highlights

  • Over a dozen full size dinosaurs on display
  • Working field lab and dig pits
  • Live lizards and toads

Meet T. rex and Astrodon face to face

These giants are just two of the huge residents in the massive, open hall. Full size skeletons and casts of fossilized remains are on display and everything is hands-on. Touch a triceratops skull. Grab a brush and work side by side with other dinosaur hunters. Pick up a set of calipers and measure the length of dinosaur leg bones or sit in a next of eggs. Stand in a footprint in the dinosaur trackway.  Listen for the roar of a lumbering giant.
