Southern Scotland's best dinosaur experience is open. Step back 150 million years and discover the giants who roamed the earth. Take a trip through the Dino Mine, hear stories and facts in the Dino Den, dig for fossils, have fun on our bouncy dinosaur and much more! A great day out for all the family! We are open 7 days a week, 10am - 5pm from 28th March to 1st November 2015.
