Dinosaur Ridge

Children run in trails marked by prehistoric footprints, and fingers run across fossils during each visit to Dinosaur Ridge, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of ancient artifacts. Around every corner of the outdoor museum—which rests on land designated as a national natural landmark—bones and impressions protrude from their earthy abodes as evidence of the area's once larger-than-life inhabitants. Paleontologists of all ages can examine curious tracks on surrounding hiking paths, such as Triceratops Trail, or hop on a guided bus tour to examine fossil sites and valleys where brontosauruses used to question the meaning of life.

Lurking inside the visitor center is the Trek Through Time exhibit, where interactive children's games, replica fossils, and massive murals join forces to lead explorers into different prehistoric eras. In addition to its day-to-day operations, Dinosaur Ridge also plays host to various events during the year, including Boy Scout days, birthday parties, and lectures that explain how T. rex stayed humble despite his large stature.

Customer Reviews

I took my 8 yr. old and 11 yr. old granddaughters and we had a great time. The tour director was very informative and answered all questions in an easy-to-understand way. They enjoyed looking at the gift shop and learning about the rocks and minerals there, too.

welcoming, knowledgeable staff - patient with my younger kids, answering their questions, in words they could understand. They loved exploring & I truly took it all in. Fascinating journey!

My kids had a great time here (11 & 14). I recommend taking the shuttle bus on your first visit because the tour guide gives you so much history and geologic information that you wouldn't get otherwise.
