Dino Week Jr: Garden State Discovery Museum

If you are looking for an all hands-on Dinosaur experience in Greater Philadelphia, then look no further than the Dinosaurium at the Garden State Discovery Museum in Cherry Hill, NJ.  This 2,000 square foot play area is dedicated to the exploration of Dinosaurs with fully interactive displays that immerse little ones in prehistoric adventure.

Dinosaur lovers will head right for the Climbasaurus, a 15 ft, three-story climbing structure built around the skeleton of an adolescent Tyrannosaurus Rex.  Climb, crawl, and slide through the Dinosaur, exploring every inch of him from head to toe.

The Dino Dig in the center of the Dinosaurium allows little paleontologists to dig for and identify various Dinosaur fossils, including the kinds from Haddy!  Head to the Roaring Room next where regular voices are turned into the impressive roars of massive Dinosaurs!

Make sure not to miss the Scientists' Shack where kids can learn even more about these createures while viewing live fish and reptiles that resemble their prehistoric "cousins".  Put together fossils to build skeletons, wrap bones, and research in the field laboratory.  After enjoying the museum's great collection of trilobites, cast your own fossil to take home!

Daily Vacationer definitely recommends a visit to the Garden State Discovery Museum to experience Dinosaurs in a completely interactive environment - do not miss this location!

We did not find our little friend, Haddy, at this Museum, but there were so many other things to play with!  Stay tuned to DINO WEEK Jr to see where we got him!
