Dinosaur Excavation

In 1984, the Children’s Museum opened its doors alongside the Platte River, but can you help us uncover what was here before? Join our excavation crew outside in the Joy Park Sand Dunes to dig for ancient dinosaur “fossils” and help us learn about what life looked like millions of years ago.

Designed ages 3+.
