Dino-Roars! Returns to the Zoo

Back by popular demand, “Dino-Roars!” is returning to the Delbridge Museum of Natural History at the Great Plains Zoo! See our Great Room transformed into a prehistoric jungle where 19 life-like dinosaurs will come to life to “roar” and swish their tails!

Fun, hands-on learning opportunities will entertain your entire family, while connecting them to real-life animals that they see at the Zoo. Learn about predator-prey relationships, compare similarities between dinosaurs and modern-day animals, and more! You can also interact with dinosaurs in an augmented virtual reality experience!

  • Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.

  • A really great zoo featuring some exotic species and I liked the focus on conservancy/breeding to preserve species for the rhinos. The safari area's cheetah was awesome to see. During a week day going, it was quite open to walk around and enjoy without too much crowding.

  • The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world. ¬†The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones. ¬†Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.
