Search for dinosaur fossils in an authentic digging site

One of Liberty Science Center’s most popular experiences has returned for another incredible summer, this time bigger and better than ever.

At Jack Horner’s Dino Dig, uncover massive dinosaur bones by digging through 35 tons of sand. Look for over 50 Late Cretaceous fossils, replicas of those discovered in Montana by Jack Horner, the famed paleontologist who inspired Jurassic Park.

In your journey, you might uncover T. rex bones and teeth, an egg nest with a baby Maiasaura, a 6-foot long Triceratops skull, and even a dragonfly fossil!

Fossils tell scientists detailed stories of the past. What can you learn from what you find?
