Dinosaur hunters’ “Bone Wars” Campaign Tent-Explores the colorful history of dinosaur hunters, from the cutthroat “Bone Wars” of the late 1800s to the adventurer and naturalist who inspired the fictional “Indiana Jones.”
Futuristic Dinosaur Research Lab with video stations-Visitors can learn about modern scientific research that utilizes powerful neutron and x-ray CT scans to create incredibly detailed 3D fossil models. These enable researchers to see previously hidden structures inside the skull of a T. Rex.
