Although it’s been more than 66 million years since dinosaurs roamed the earth, The Dinosaur Place™ at Nature's Art Village is home to over 40 life-sized dinosaurs situated in a pristine, picturesque, 60 acre woodland setting.
Stroll through over 1.5 miles of dinosaur trails wrapping around a scenic lake. Access the trails by walking under the belly of a life-sized brachiosaurus, an immense creature that measures 75 feet long and 40 feet tall! Enjoy the state-of-the-art playground featuring the one-of-a-kind SpaceNet, designed exclusively for The Dinosaur Place™. Get lost in a"MAZE"asaurus where families can play together to find their way out sliding down the mouth of a giant T-rex.

NEW THIS SEASON… See dinosaurs come to life with a NEW Animatronic Dinosaur Encounter. He moves, he roars, and more!

During the summer, bring along your bathing suit and get wet in New England’s largest SplashPad® where dinosaur-themed water features delight kids and adults of all ages. Enjoy a variety of picnic areas, find tasty treats at Monty’s Munchies or enjoy an ice cream at the Ice Cream Shop.

While at Nature’s Art Village, make sure to explore indoors and enjoy an adventured-filled, hands-on activity center, Discovery Depot! There you can dig for gems in Jackpot Mine, pan for "gold" in Thunder Creek, and uncover a dinosaur fossil with Dr. Bonez as a junior paleontologist in the Bone Zone. Best of all, everything you find you get to keep!

Visit The SHOPS at Nature's Art Village for artistic jewelry, gifts, toys, beads, minerals, fossils and more.
