Our youngest Museum friends will love this special play area in the Atrium. Children can nestle into a dinosaur nest, tell a T. rex tale by the campfire, and hide out in a tent with a book or a puzzle. Chairs and benches provide a perch for parents and grandparents to relax while the kids safely play. Camp-o-Saurus is not available on Residents Free Days or other special event days.
