Dinos at the Dallas Zoo



An adventure of epic proportions opens at the Dallas Zoo this spring, and you won’t want to miss it! ZooNorth transforms into a prehistoric jungle with over two dozen larger-than-life dinosaurs waiting to be discovered.

Why are Dinos at the Dallas Zoo?
Dinosaurs are an important part of history and with your support, the work we do here at the Dallas Zoo will ensure the animals in our care today don’t become the  dinosaurs of tomorrow. The exhibit extends throughout ZooNorth, and you’ll learn how dinosaurs are connected to the animals you see here at the Zoo and what part you play in their survival.


Are the activities an additional cost?
Access to the Dinos exhibit and all the fun activities are included with your purchase of general admission tickets. Don’t forget, members get free access! Not a member? Join today and save 10%.


Is Dinos open rain or shine?
Yes! Just like the Zoo, Dinos is open rain or shine. But we highly suggest checking the weather before you attend and dressing accordingly, since the Dinos exhibit is outdoors.
