Nature's Art: The Dinosaur Place™, located in Oakdale, is a family-owned and operated interactive science, nature and shopping adventure.
You'll discover indoor hands-on activities that put the "funology" in geology and paleontology! Kids love stepping back in time and discovering what it was really like to pan for gold in our running creek, or strapping on their miner's helmets and digging for gems in one of our 4 man-made caves.
For our junior paleontologists, they'll be able to unearth fossils and learn more about the creatures that roamed the earth millions of years ago.
Outdoors, the whole family will love exploring the nature trails with over 30 life-sized dinosaur replicas and educational exhibits along the way.
Plus, there's a state-of-the-art playground, maze and even New England's largest Splashpad® – a unique dinosaur-themed water park.
For the kid in all of us the discoveries continue in the unique collection of shops where you'll find one-of-a-kind jewelry, minerals and fossils, beads and findings, and quality educational toys.
