Celebrate Memorial Day weekend with KidzFest, presented by Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Broward Outpatient Centers, in conjunction with the opening of our new exhibit, Lost World of Dinosaurs.  

At Lost World of Dinosaurs you’ll discover 27 life-size replicas, nestled among the jungle settings of Flamingo Gardens. Explore modern day plant and animal descendants. Unearth bones in the Dino Dig, touch real fossils, and see a real fossilized dinosaur egg.

During KidzFest, Memorial Day weekend only, children can speak with a Paleontologist to learn from the experts, attend special guided tours, play on the bounce houses, and enjoy kid's entertainment, games, crafts, vendor booths, food and some fun "dino" surprises! 

Admission to Flamingo Garden’s KidzFest and Lost World of Dinosaurs exhibit is $19.95 ages 12+, $12.95 ages 3-11, members and children 2 or younger free. Narrated Tram Tour is included.
