Dinosaur Den and Prehistoric Pathway

The Prehistoric Pathway is designed for children ages 3 – 8 and features indoor and outdoor learning environments with interactive, hands-on science activities. As they journey into the ancient past, kids can dress up in dinosaur costumes and imagine what it might have been like to walk and roar like dinosaurs, explore the Dinosaur Den, a cave with rock specimens, study slides of insects, snake skin, plant life under a microscope, and touch real fossil tracks that are 200 million years old.
