Those who walked the Earth millions of years ago are now on display at the Virginia Living Museum. The Dinosaur Discovery Trail is now open as a permanent exhibit at the Newport News facility.
The Dinosaurs were so popular during their summer run for 25 years, that the VLM decided to give them a forever home in collaboration with their 50th anniversary.
Visitors will walk through the woods to see realistic one-third to full-size dinosaurs from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. The dinosaurs will range in size from a mini Ankylosaur to a 16-foot-tall Brachiosaurus.
The trail will also include a Paleontology camp with dig pits. Also dinosaur and Ice Age fossil exhibits, including one with an actual whale specimen from Hampton Roads.
