Empower people to question existing answers
Did T-Rex live closer in time to Apatosaurus or your mom? Were dinosaurs warm-blooded? Are they really extinct? Driven by questions and answers, Dinosaur Revolution challenges visitor knowledge, presents cutting-edge discoveries, and debunks popular myths.
Travel through time and get a dinosaur's eye view! Experience what its like to crush the earth beneath your gigantic feet as you Make Tracks in the Triassic. Learn to fly as you Glide through the Jurassic.
Return to the present day, earn your Jr. Paleontologist credentials and engage in the most current dino-debates. Testify in T-Rex's defense, save the natural history museum from an expensive fossil hoax, and scale a wall of mysteries as you Climb Through Time.
Make Tracks in the Triassic - When it comes to dino feet, the bigger the better! Jump into one of three types of dinosaur feet and make an impression. The tracks you make will be important clues later on in your adventure!
Dino Push Ups - Dinosaurs are reptiles but not all reptiles are dinosaurs. Drop and give me five Dino-reps to figure out the difference.
Climb Through Time - There's more to dirt than meets the eye! Scale the soil stratification climbing wall and discover that time is captured in the dirt.
Glide through the Jurassic - You don't need wings to fly, but the dinosaurs did! Did Archaeopteryx learned to fly by jumping up or jumping down?
Jr. Paleontologist Academy - Do You Like to Get Dirty? Questions and answers lead the way to understanding that each of us can help reveal the mysteries surrounding dinosaurs.
Is it a Dino? - Just because it ends with "saur' doesn't mean it begins with "Dino". Test your knowledge with surprising results!

The museum is sending you, a recent graduate of the Jr. Paleontology Academy, to investigate. Your job: to examine the fossils, determine if they are authentic and learn whether fossils should be bought and sold.
Claw and Order - T-Rex is accused of first degree predation! The Society for the Preservation of an Innocent T-Rex (S.P.I.T) has hired you to testify in his defense! After examining the evidence you will report your findings to the jury.
Cladogram Challenge - Go out on a limb and see what's up the dinosaur family tree! Learn who's who by classifying the different dinosaurs into their scientific category (clade).

"Dinosaur Revolution used the power of its topic and kinesthetic engagement to spark the visitors' interest in finding out more about the age of the dinosaurs - from dinosaur characteristics to the processes and principals of paleontology. The content was embedded in the experience and labels were written in a way that was accessible to a wide range of audience members." Sonya Wolen, Assistant Director, Danville Science Center
