We all love dinosaurs!

Immerse yourself in prehistoric adventure for an entire weekend in our recently opened Dinosaur Hall.

Meet Cincinnati’s newest, oldest residents and speak with experts about all things extinct (and not so extinct). Learn about Cincinnati’s role in the world of fossils, get your hands dirty and be ready to dig up something exciting!

Dino Days are free for Members or included with a Discovery Pass, with the exception of our Birdly experience (see below).
