May 25 - September 2, 2019

Travel back millions of years to prehistoric times when dinosaurs ruled the earth as Flamingo Gardens hosts Guy Darrough's Lost World of Dinosaurs from May 25 to September 2, 2019. The Lost World of Dinosaurs exhibit was so popular in 2017, we've scheduled a return visit for summer of 2019! 

27 realistic dinosaur replicas! Discover some of the largest terrestrial creatures that ever lived, nestled among the realistic jungle settings of Flamingo Garden’s botanical gardens. Explore modern day plant and animal descendants. Unearth bones in the Dino Dig, touch real fossils, and see real mounted dinosaur skeletons in the Gallery. This is a journey you won't want to miss!

NEW THIS YEAR! ​In the gallery visitors can enjoy the Echoes of Extinction exhibit, a fossil showcase of rare pre-historic fossils, fossil skeletons, fossil flora, replicas, and reconstructions. The exhibit includes one of only two mounted Nanotyrannus skeletons in the world, a 14 feet long mounted Tricaeratops skeleton, and the only mounted fossil leg of the Dakotaraptor in the world, standing at over 5 feet tall. A variety of interactive features will engage the public including an original 3-foot dinosaur bone that can be touched, an excavation pit dig with fossil replicas and an augmented reality sandbox.

The exhibit will include on-site appearances by paleontologists and historians with whom visitors can engage with and learn from the professionals. 

PLEASE NOTE: The Gallery exhibit will be closed Saturday, June 22, July 27, and August 24 for West Palm Beach Judging Center orchid judging.
