St. Louis Science Center Dig Site

Step into the world of dinosaur discovery. Set in the badlands of Montana, this interactive Dig Site transports visitors to the field of an authentic dinosaur dig.

This new addition to the Ecology and Environment gallery lets visitors experience what it is like to be a real paleontologist as they excavate casts made from fossils that are on display in the Fossil Prep Lab.

Visitors interact with a Virtual Docent, who guides them through their excavation by instructing them on the dig, and answers questions about their findings.

The Dig Site is a free attraction.
