May 25 - September 2-CLOSED
We're sorry but this exhibit will be closed starting Friday,August 30, to help us prepare for Hurricane Dorian. Out of an abundance of caution, our team is taking great measures to protect our beautiful gardens and animals, as well as the safety of our guests and staff. We thank you for your understanding.
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.
Funding for this project is provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council.
