The NEW Dinosphere

They’re big. They’re fierce. They’re back.
Real prehistoric giants unearthed.
The new Dinosphere®. Now You’re in Their World.

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.

5 Areas to Explore

You can enter the world of dinosaurs in five immersive experiences:

They are still the largest animals ever to walk on Earth, and they have been gone for millions of years! Meet our two towering new sauropods—enormous four-legged, long-necked creatures that only ate plants. Learn how they grew to be so huge, and be amazed!

The dinosaurs you've come to know and love in Dinosphere® are back! Return to the watering hole and see a world of prehistoric activity with Bucky the T. rex, Kelsey the Triceratops, and other Cretaceous creatures!

Dive deep into the sights and sounds of the ancient aquatic world! Immerse yourself in a shimmering, undersea experience, and encounter fearsome fossils from this mysterious world.

Let real life inspire your imagination. Through different forms of art, you can bring dinosaur fossils to life in the Dinosphere Art Lab! Pair real science with your creativity to draw, sculpt, and design a day in the life of a dinosaur.

Talk to real scientists who are doing real science on our real fossils in the R.B. Annis Mission Jurassic Paleo Lab and the Polly H. Hix Paleo Prep Lab!
