Dinosaur Museum Thanksgiving Point

Museum of Ancient Life

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 at Late Night with Rex, held once a month, where you go on a scavenger hunt through the museum, 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.
