Fossils are more fascinating under a microscope! Get “eye to eye” with a trilobite or “down to the bone” with a hadrosaur femur at this technology-enabled educational cart.
Celebrate all things dinosaur with a dino-themed craft!
Special Exhibit: Dinosaurs Around the World
Embark on a globetrotting expedition around Pangea, where dinosaurs reign throughout the land. Dinosaurs Around the World introduces visitors to more than a dozen animatronic dinosaurs on a voyage from the ferocious plains of Africa and the tropical beaches of Antarctica, to the inland seas of North America and the polar darkness of Australia. Find out how continental drift, sea level fluctuations and volcanic activity allowed dinosaurs to disperse to all corners of the globe. Learn about paleontological research, touch fossil casts, discover and name your own dinosaur, investigate what dinosaurs may have looked like in life and find modern-day dinosaurs right in your own backyard!
