Visitors can step back 290 million years to a time before dinosaurs roamed the planet. These scientifically accurate models of moving beasts are re-created using artwork and fossils.

Kids can expect to see odd-looking sharks, strange reptiles with mammal-like characteristics, and the vicious predator the giant saber-toothed gorgonopsid. In addition, children can play paleontologist, dig for fossil casts, and enjoy interactive games.

Purchasing timed tickets in advance is encouraged.

Please keep your family and others safe by always wearing masks and maintaining social distancing measures. If an event appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our event calendar to find something else to do.
