The World’s Largest Dinosaurs

(February 11th, 2017 – September 4th, 2017)

Organized by the American Museum of Natural History, The World’s Largest Dinosaurs explores the gargantuan creatures known as sauropods. Though these beasts were known for being so massive and so tall with long reaching necks and tiny heads, there was something much more astounding about them. Having had roamed the Earth for 140 million years, they stood tall as one of the planet’s greatest success stories. But how did they accomplish this feat?

$14* adults | $8* children

The Discovery Room engages children 3-12 years old and their accompanying caregivers in the disciplines of the natural sciences. Visitors can assemble a Prestosuchus, a life-sized cast of a Triassic reptile and dig up fossils in a re-creation of a paleontology field site among many other activities and resources. This will be the place for Kansas City’s curious young scientists. Children must be accompanied by adults and adults must be accompanied by children. The Discovery Room is first-come, first-served. Sessions start at 15 minutes past each hour and last 45 minutes. The first session begins 10:15 a.m. Monday-Saturday and 12:15 p.m. on Sunday. The last session of the day begins at 4:15 p.m. The Discovery Room closes each hour on the hour for a 15-minute cleanup.
