Dino Don’s DinoVenture — Now Open!

The dinosaurs have come alive in The Bishop’s newest experience: Dino Don’s DinoVenture, where you can discover the roaring, breathing giants that once ruled the Earth!

We’ve partnered with DinoDon, Inc. to transport you back in time as you meet the world’s most lifelike animatronic dinosaurs — complete with waterproof silicon skin and electronic brains that control every flick of a tail and every blink of an eye. DinoVenture, located outdoors on the Museum’s Riverside Plaza, allows you to get up close and personal with some 30 dinosaurs from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods.

The animals in DinoVenture were created by Don Lessem, the dinosaur advisor on Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, who is known world-wide for his dinosaur expertise. Lessem has written more than 40 popular science books about dinosaurs, has excavated and reconstructed skeletons of some of the largest dinosaurs that ever existed and has a dinosaur — the Lessemsaurus, a sauropod — named for him.
