This permanent exhibit will showcase 16 of the majestic animals that ruled our earth for more than 150 million years. Visitors will walk through the woods to see realistic one-third to full-size dinosaurs from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. The dinosaurs will range in size from a mini Ankylosaurus to a 16-foot-tall Brachiosaurus. There will be a baby T. rex. photo op and a half-size T. rex.

The trail will also include a Paleo camp and dig pits for amateur paleontologists, including one with an actual whale specimen from Hampton Roads, and displays of dinosaur and Ice Age fossils.. Read more…
