We’re on a Mission—Mission Jurassic!

Mission Jurassic is a $27.5 million project that will bring together more than 100 scientists from three countries to explore and excavate a fossil-rich dinosaur dig site in Wyoming, known as The Jurassic Mile. 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
  • 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 is a $27.5 million project that will be brought to life through the generosity of donors. Donate now on our website, or for extraordinary naming opportunities check out our Mission Jurassic Field Guide or contact Amy Kwas at 317-334-4608 or AKwas@childrensmuseum.org.
