Indoor Playspace

Let the little ones explore a world of excitement in the Dino Seas indoor playspace. This multi-level play structure, with climbing challenges, interactive elements, and engaging activities will inspire imagination, adventure, and endless fun. Ideal for ages 5-12, children can run wild while within the safety of this entertaining space.

FROGS!

Hop into a world of frogs, toads, salamanders, reptiles, and more in our FROGS! exhibit in Dino Seas. Encounter more than two dozen species of amphibians, reptiles, and fish, each with their unique characteristics and ecological significance.

See vibrant poison dart frogs, decked out in an array of brilliant colors meant to alert predators to stay away! Look closely to spot other frogs that blend into their habitat, camouflaging themselves instead of standing out. Dive into the intriguing aquatic lifestyle and intricate life cycles of salamanders and discover the scaly skin and extraordinary patterns of reptiles. These, and more, are waiting for you in FROGS!

As you journey through this exciting and educational display, designed to foster an appreciation for the ecological interdependencies and conservation challenges faced by these creatures, you will gain insights into the fragile balance of our natural world and the responsibility we all share to protect it.

Engaging video games provide both entertainment and education, and you can unleash your creativity and design your very own sea creature at the animation station. Explore a dynamic sand table where your efforts to shape mountains and valleys will entice different animals to appear, and prepare for a unique olfactory challenge with the "guess-the-smell" activity.
