Dino Zone

Welcome to the Dino Zone, presented by Honest Engine Films! Travel back in time to the age of the dinosaurs as you enter the Dino Zone, Syracuse’s first permanent life-sized dinosaur exhibit!

Experience amazingly lifelike dinosaurs as you travel back in time to the age of the dinosaurs with the Museum’s permanent dinosaur collection! The moving lifelike dinosaurs were created with guidance from paleontologists and are displayed in scenes that depict what life was like on Earth during the age of the dinosaurs more than 65 million years ago!

In one exhibit scene, two Pachycephalosaurs square off in a head-butting show of dominance. Not far away, a Maiasaura mother tends to a nest of hatchlings and juveniles similar to the way modern birds behave today. Another setting showcases an Albertosaurus, a close relative of the Tyrannosaurus rex!

The Dino Zone also features touchable dinosaur skin and teeth, microscopic eggs, a dino dig pit for guests to simulate digging and discovering fossils, a fossil rubbing station, and an interactive remote-control dinosaur model to explain the technology behind the exhibit’s dinosaur movements. This exhibit will excite visitors of all ages while teaching about dinosaurs and Earth as it existed tens of millions of years ago during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods – two of the most captivating and exciting eras of the past!
