Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point

Families can learn about paleontology as they peruse galleries full of mounted dinosaur skeletons. Lots of hands-on activities and frequent special events make this a worthwhile destination.


The Museum of Ancient Life has the distinction of being the world's largest display of mounted dinosaurs.  Not only will you meet our fierce prehistoric friends at the museum, though, you'll also become a part of their world.  While you're weaving through the exhibits, chirps of insects and growls of ancient creatures greet you in each hall.  Exhibits like the Erosion Table and the Fossil Dig give you an opportunity be a part of the science of paleontology.  Needless to say, this is not an ordinary museum.
