About the Dinosaur Discovery Trail:

The Dinosaur Discovery Trail is a permanent exhibit that opened as a part of the Virginia Living Museum’s 50th-anniversary celebration and showcases 16 of the majestic animals that ruled our earth for more than 150 million years. Visitors walk through the woods to see realistic one-third to full-size dinosaurs from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. The dinosaurs range in size from a mini ankylosaur to a 16-foot-tall Brachiosaurus. There is a baby T. rex photo op, a half-size T. rex, plus several nests and baby dinosaurs.

The trail also includes a Paleo camp, dig pits for amateur paleontologists,  and displays of dinosaur and other fossils, including an actual whale specimen from Hampton Roads.
