A new, interactive exhibit, Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice™,  featuring touchable dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes – including a  Tyrannosaurus Rex and Triceratops – has opened at Port Discovery right in time for summer adventures.


Children will build science skills as they learn about dinosaurs, experiment with materials and tools, ask questions, and have fun! Exhibit areas include:


A Field Research Station, where children can pretend to be a paleontologist by uncovering fossils with brushes and by creating drawings using fossil rubbings and tracings.


The Land of Fire, where you’ll explore the prehistoric home of the Triceratops and T-Rex. Circle the land in insect costumes, explore a volcano with oozing lava, and make your way through a swampy bog while identifying animals and plants!


The Land of Ice (no coats needed!), where visitors meet two dinosaurs, a Troodon and Edmontosaurus, who made their homes in the cold climate of Alaska. Plus, explore rocky steps and icy slides from the cold climate of Alaska!


Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice is included in General Admission to Port Discovery Children’s Museum The Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice exhibit will be open at Port Discovery through September 9th, 2018.


Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice was created by Minnesota Children's Museum and is sponsored nationally by The David B. Jones Foundation and sponsored locally by M&T Bank. Learn more here.
