The New Dinosphere® opens at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis March 19! In celebration, dinosaurs have taken over Indianapolis and laid eggs all over your favorite downtown hotspots. The first person to find and claim each egg receives a FREE museum admission ticket and is entered to win a membership to The Children's Museum! Take a photo with your egg and tag the museum on social media to receive an extra entry into the drawing. One egg per person, please.
Can you find one of the eggs? As eggs are found, we will display the location on the map below. The contest runs March 15, 2022, at Noon EDT through March 16, 2022, at Noon EDT (or until all of the eggs are claimed!). Use this key to navigate the map below:
Purple Star Icons = Claimed Egg
Black Question Mark Icons = Egg missing but not claimed
Pink Point Icons = Location of egg that hasn’t been found
Here’s what our DINO-mite friends left behind:
- 72 eggs—The first person to find each egg gets to keep the egg, wins one admission to The Children's Museum and is entered to win a family membership to The Children’s Museum.
Please be respectful of downtown Indianapolis property during this contest. View the contest rules.
About the exhibit
Dinosphere® opened in 2004 and quickly became our most popular permanent exhibit. We’ve taken everything you know and love about Dinosphere® and made it even more amazing! Stand in awe of enormous long-necked, four-legged creatures in Giants of the Jurassic™, see your old dino friends in Creatures of the Cretaceous™, explore the ancient aquatic world in Monsters of the Mesozoic Seas™, and spark your creativity in Dinosphere Art Lab—all in the new Dinosphere®!
They were some of the largest animals ever to roam the Earth. And now these enormous creatures will call the new Dinosphere® home. Enter this immersive environment, marvel at the dinosaurs’ size, and learn the real science behind this one-of-a-kind exhibit.
