There are plenty of Dinosaur exhibits to catch this summer in Detroit.  I know my six year old son has a trip all planned with his cousins.  Check out these options to some prehistoric fun this summer.   In addition to the special dinosaur exhibits you also get to enjoy the zoo or museum – bonus!


Dinosauria – Detroit Zoo. This exhibit features more than 30 growling animatronic dinosaurs in natural settings.  We saw these last time they were at the zoo and really enjoyed it.    Open until Labor Day.  Check the Detroit Zoo Website for hours and pricing information.


Dinosaurs  Unearthed – Detroit Science Center. Larger than life dinosaurs are part of this prehistoric exhibit at the Detroit Science Center.    Open until Labor Day.  For more information visit


World of Dinosaurs  –  Cranbrook Institute of Science.   Check out prehistoric beasts that roamed by “sea, land and air”.  Open until Labor Day.

For the record if you are looking for an excellent dinosaur dvd you can’t go wrong with the BBC’s  Ultimate Dinosaur Collection.  This top rate 3 dvd set takes you back to the time of dinosaurs.   The whole family enjoyed it at our house!
