Jurassic Garden

The Jurassic World Springs to Life at Fairchild!

Now through July 18, 2021
Daily 10:00 am – 4:00 p.m.

Discover life-size dinosaurs surrounded by our major collection of cycads and other living plants from the Prehistoric World!  Dinosaurs have been extinct for 65 million years, but no matter how many millennia have passed, we still remain fascinated by these creatures. 

When you visit Jurassic Garden, you’ll not only experience some of the most realistic dinosaurs ever created, you’ll also learn about cycads, ferns, conifers and flowering plants within the fun and family-friendly context of dinosaurs, the brand ambassadors of prehistoric Earth. 

The Garden’s collections have never reflected a greater diversity of species, the cooling mist in the Rainforest and Conservatories will surely make hiking through Jurassic Garden exciting and comfortable. Our family friendly exhibits and spaces will make the overall experience remarkable.
