What not to miss!
DINOSAUR DISCOVERY SITE HIGHLIGHTS
The fossils at the museum preserve both the details of the track and the actions of the track-maker. As a visitor, that means you’ll get to see details of dinosaur feet and also learn about dinosaur behavior. But that’s not all, based on the many other fossils found at the site, you’ll also begin to understand what this area looked like 200 million years ago.
Replicas & Restorations
Don’t miss the 5 life-sized models found throughout the museum. Beginning in 2010, the museum commissioned local artist, Erric Wan-kier, with Art Escapes 3D, to construct the models. Moreover, he worked with our paleontologists to make them as accurate as possible. Currently, we have a juvenile Dilophosaurus, a Megapnosaurus, a Dimorphodon, a Scutellosaurus, and a Protosuchus.
Come play in the Dino Park! Where you’ll find a sandbox and a climb-on dinosaur, along with picnic tables and a “Walk Through Time” exhibit. The museum plans on adding 2D sculptures to the exhibit showing various kinds of ancient animals. See what’s new today.
We have a new activity area in the lobby of the museum. We will have rotating activities such as finding fossils, dinosaur-themed games, coloring pages, and more. Remember to ask about our scavenger hunt!
