Dino Detective

What will you discover from all the dino fossils?

Become a paleontologist!

Learn how geology affects where paleontologists dig for dinosaur remains with our Augmented Reality Sand Table. You can shape the landscape, creating rivers, mountains, dams, even making it rain or snow!

Don a pair of goggles, climb into a mountainside dig site and help unearth Triceratops fossils.

Take part in the scientific process as you compare its jaws, claws and vertebrae to those of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Which one was a carnivore and which one was an herbivore?

Measure your thigh against life-size replica femur bones to see how big these dinosaurs were.

Make rubbings of ammonite fossils to complete your scientific investigation.

ON LOAN thru the summer of 2017: Come pose next to a life-size Tyrannosaurus Rex skull and foot print replica and see just how gigantic these creatures were! This loan is from Shawn Warren of The PAST, and made possible by the love and support of June Marie Warren and William Donald Warren of Neillsville, Wisconsin.

"The new 3D topographic sandbox is amazing. We love this place and drive from Manchester to visit."
