Adults and kids alike will enjoy a day filled with themed activities, featuring: games, crafts, and a variety of hands-on activities. Attendees are also encouraged to come dressed up as their favorite dinosaur character!

The fun continues as guests celebrate the anniversary of the permanent Giants of the Mesozoic exhibit! Filling the Great Hall, the exhibition shows a re-creation of life in the badlands of Patagonia, Argentina, where the largest dinosaurs in the world were unearthed.
