Discover the Dinosaurs, a hands-on exhibit including up to 60 animatronic and museum quality dinosaur replicas, is coming to the North Atlanta Trade Center in Norcross this weekend.
From Feb. 22 to Feb. 24, the exhibit will showcase museum-quality pieces along with several moving animatronic dinosaurs, all in a fun and educational environment. The exhibit is scheduled to travel across the country all throughout the year.

Several other attractions including gem & fossil panning, face painting, dinosaur inflatables, mini golf, and Dino rides are available for additional charge.
Discover the Dinosaurs engages the imaginations of kids to learn, gives them the hands on opportunity to touch a dinosaur, actually ride on the back of a T-Rex, and experience other fun activities & attractions that make spending the day with dinosaurs fun for all ages.
