Roam among the dinosaurs, explore a Carboniferous Forest, and dive deep into a Cretaceous Ocean at the Museum of Ancient Life. Come visit one of the world’s largest displays of mounted dinosaurs with 60 complete dinosaur skeletons in our galleries, along with more than 50 hands-on exhibits. This is the destination to enjoy learning about our pre-historic animals, playing with toy dinosaurs in the Erosion Table, and digging for fossils in the quarry dig. 

Also, be sure to check out the working paleontology lab where workers are unearthing real dinosaur bones. Right now, the lab is working on a 150-million-year-old long neck dinosaur called a Barosaurus. You can even pretend to be a paleontologist yourself in the Junior Paleo Lab by casting your own fossil and drilling a real fish fossil to take home.

If you want to make a night of it, spend the evening here, take fun paleontology classes, and get popcorn and drinks with a 3D movie at the Mammoth Screen. Whether you come by day or by night, the Museum of Ancient Life will be a lively adventure you'll never forget.

Museum of Ancient Life Features

Source Code

“Computational Thinking” is one of the most important skills that young people can acquire to prepare them for their professional future, but what exactly is it? In Source Code, we explore the concepts that make up Computational Thinking and introduce them to guests of all ages through a series of activities that encourage creating, tinkering, debugging, persevering, and collaborating.

By racing drones and bots through obstacle courses, “programming” your friend to be a human robot, inventing and modifying video games, or creating designs together, you’ll discover patterns, logic, evaluation, or algorithms, and how they can be applied to every-day, real-world applications such as weather predictions, plant identification, surgery, or animal conservation.
