Explore the museum's newly reopened permanent exhibition with prehistoric specimens, artifacts and dinosaurs from the museum's noted paleontology collection highlighted by interactive digital technology.

DinoLabs tells the story of Bone to Stone, an earth sciences study of fossilization. The renovation of the nearly 4,000 square foot gallery began in June, with the move of Paluxysaurus jonesi, the official State Dinosaur of Texas.

Allosaurus and Camptosaurus, "the fighting dinosaurs," are highlights of the exhibition which also features the museum's Tenontosaurus dossi discovered in nearby Parker County. 

The movement technology was designed specifically for the museum's gallery to create an immersive space where anything is possible. Computer stations in DinoLand bring dinosaurs to life on an immense 19-foot curved screen.

DinoStomp encourages romping in a prehistoric world. Movement is tracked along a 20-foot video wall with animated creatures interacting at every turn. These experiences will unleash creativity, the power of expression and nurture spatial intelligence and logical thinking skills.

DinoLabs fosters an understanding of earth sciences, geology and even conservation through the story of the dinosaur, which plays an important role in learning and discovery.
