DINO PLAY is a travelling exhibit that immerses children in the world of dinosaurs. In collaboration with The Mind Museum, it is an interactive, educational, and exciting venue in which the young can indulge their fascination and curiosity about these magnificent creatures that lived 65 million years ago.

Entering the exhibit, guests are welcomed by dino footprints that lure them into four nests, namely:
Dino Dig
Dino Lab
Dino Fun
Dino Den

Beginning with Dino Dig, children get to put themselves in the shoes of paleontologists who study the previous life of dinosaurs through rocks and fossils. Excavation sites are mimicked through this nest’s sand boxes, where fossil replicas are buried, for kid-scientists to uncover.

At Dino Lab, guests can examine actual fossils ranging from dinosaur bones, to petrified wood, and even remains of extinct ancient creatures.

In the Dino Fun area, children can participate in various activities that exercises their learnings from the exhibits. At its center, the Dino Lookout Tower looms over the nest, giving guests a bird’s eye view of the displays below. To get to the top, one can climb the rope ladder or rock-climbing walls that flank the sides of the tower.

Towards the end of the exhibit, the Dino Den recreates the forest land environs of dinosaurs, where kids can stomp around and leave dino footprints with their friends.
