Dinosaur Den

Dino Den

Find out what New Jersey looked like 65 million years ago and learn about the lives of dinosaurs. Visitors can see real dinosaur eggs, follow dinosaur tracks, and hear the simulated sound of a honking Hadrosaur. Using various clues and fossils, such as footprints, fossilized eggs, and dinosaur teeth, visitors can become acquainted with the creatures that lived in New Jersey during the Age of the Dinosaurs.

Throughout the gallery visitors are encouraged to learn about the lives of dinosaurs, and characteristics such as their claw movements and crest trumpeting for communication. The exhibition focuses on dinosaur themes: Nesting and Growth, Tracks and Movement, Paleo-environmental Reconstruction (using paleontology to reconstruct the landscape of a specific time and place), Predator and Prey, and What’s for Dinner.
