Mission Jurassic is a $27.5 million project that has brought together dozens of scientists from three countries to explore and excavate a fossil-rich dinosaur dig site in Wyoming, known as the Jurassic Mile™ dig site. The site is a treasure trove of Jurassic fossil bones, trackways, and preserved plant life from millions of years ago, that will lead to never-before-told stories about the Jurassic Period. Mission Jurassic includes:
- An expansion of Dinosphere® that will bring Giants of the Jurassic™ to The Children's Museum—learn more about the exhibit here.
- An exciting dinosaur dig featuring Jurassic fossil bones, plants, trackways, and marine animals all in one place.
- An international partnership with world-class scientists.
Mission Jurassic will be brought to life through the generosity of donors. Donate
