In Newport News, Va., the Virginia Living Museum’s permanent outdoor Dinosaur Discovery Trail showcases 16 of the majestic animals that roamed earth for more 150 million years.
You’ll see realistic one-third to full-size dinosaurs from the Jurassic and Cretaceous eras, ranging in size up to a 16-foot-tall Brachiosaurus.
The trail includes a children’s play area and “dig pits” for amateur paleontologists. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to experience life in the age of the dinosaurs.
The museum offers formal school programs that support STEM education in all grade levels, taught by a professional faculty of scientist/instructors.
