  • Experience two stirring tales of large-scale excavation sites on opposite sides of the globe—from the deserts of Mongolia to a quarry in Utah—and uncover secrets about life on Earth, millions of years ago.
  • Activate animatronic dinosaurs like Triceratops and Stegosaurus and see them come alive at the Make Me Move stations.
  • Play like a paleontologist for the day: Unearth and identify fossil replicas at the Dig Table.
  • Hear what scientists believe was the voice of a Corythosaurus.
  • Check out nearly two dozen fossils from the Jurassic and Cretaceous Periods, including an Oviraptor egg and coprolite—a.k.a. dinosaur dung!
