To provide an entertaining and educational experience for guests of all ages to discover interesting facts about dinosaur history and make connections about Lowcountry natural history
Dinosaurs! will be located in the Butterfly Exhibit and the field adjacent.
The limited time exhibit features both outdoor and indoor experiences.
Dinosaur Dissection Lab— Volunteers will engage youngsters in “dissecting” realistic-looking dinosaur body parts made of non-latex materials. Located in Brookgreen’s Children’s Discovery Room. Families will learn and explore while using this awesome hands-on activity. Children will also enjoy a make-and-take dinosaur craft, along with several stations with an art, nature and history component. The Children’s Discovery Room is currently open 12-4:30 p.m.
Animatronic Dinosaurs—The exhibit features 17 lifelike dinosaur animatronics along an outdoor landscaped pathway. As guests pass by each animatronic, a sensor signals various parts—eyes, head, arms, tail—to move.
Paleontologist Excavation Site—Along the trail, there will be a replica of a paleontologist campsite site that showcases how paleontologists uncover dinosaur specimens, and gives children the chance to uncover “fossils” on their own.
Colorful Graphics—Signage introduces guests to each of the animatronics that represent the inhabitants from a time gone by, from the Late Jurassic Period when the Stegosaurus roamed North America 150 million years ago to the Late Cretaceous Period of 85-75 million years ago when the Pteranodon wandered the earth.
