Jurassic Park in New MexicoThis popular museum showcases a permanent exhibit of all things dinosaurs including rare finds and Jurassic era life-size replicas. It's like walking back into time, a scene out of Jurassic Park -dating back a mere 200 million years ago.
There's also a naturalist center and a walk-through simulated volcano. The museum's advanced planetarium, a full dome theatre, is where the live action happens. Don't miss "Enchanted Skies," a very cool look at constellations, planets and the far, deep sky.
