Summer of Dinosaurs

Enjoy an exciting season of discovery when dinosaurs take over the Montshire Museum of Science. During the Summer of Dinosaurs, the Montshire will offer an opportunity to explore the lives of dinosaurs, big and small. Enjoy hands-on exhibits about dinosaur eggs and babies, dramatic dinosaur fossil specimens, and science activities for all ages.

Amazing Allosauruses

​See the Amazing Allosauruses, featuring a life-sized adult (23 feet long!) and a juvenile Allosaurus, in the Montshire’s main atrium gallery. These carnivorous theropod dinosaurs lived 155 to 145 million years ago during the late Jurassic period. During this time, they were the largest predators, placing them at the top of the dinosaur food chain!

Tiny Titans: Dinosaur Eggs and Babies

On the second floor, visitors can catch a rare and exciting glimpse at the lives of dinosaurs through their eggs, nests, and embryos in Tiny Titans: Dinosaur Eggs and Babies. This remarkable exhibition offers an astounding array of authentic dinosaur eggs and nests collected from all over the globe—including those of each of the major plant and meat-eating dinosaur groups.

A captivating experience for all ages, Tiny Titans invites visitors to touch real dinosaur bones and reconstructed nests, experience hands-on exploration stations, and view animated video presentations featuring well-known dinosaur experts. Each science-rich section is enhanced with exciting life-like models of embryos and hatchlings, colorful illustrations of dinosaur family life, and stunning photographs of some of the world’s most renowned dinosaur scientists and their discoveries.

​Explore the Summer of Dinosaurs and discover the science behind these phenomenal creatures that once roamed the earth!
