Do you believe in the paranormal? Have you ever wanted to participate in a paranormal investigation? Join the Dinosaur Discovery Museum after hours to hear spooky stories of strange happenings, explore possible evidence of the paranormal captured by real life ghost hunters including pictures and EVPs, and investigate the museum for yourself. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.



Sensory Friendly Days

Sensory Friendly Days give visitors of all ages with complex developmental disabilities, sensory sensitivities, or on the autism spectrum a safe, comfortable environment to explore the museum exhibits during special hours before the museum opens to the general public. Where possible, our lights will be dimmed and the sound turned off. Signage will be posted for those areas in which we are unable to turn off the sound or there may be other sensory triggers. Trained staff will be available to help visitors navigate the museum and offer supportive resources (noise-cancelling headphones, fidgets, weighted blankets, quiet spaces), as well as opportunities for sensory engagement during your exploration of the museum.
