Superpower Dogs 3D highlights the life-saving superpowers and bravery of some of the world’s most amazing dogs. Wild Africa 3D takes you on a spectacular 3D ride across, over, and through the magical realms of the most dramatic continent on earth.
New Gems and Minerals Hall
We are thrilled to reveal our second completely transformed exhibit hall! With a new redesigned floor plan, new opportunities to engage, and new cases to highlight one-of-a-kind signature displays and beautiful new pieces, the hall is a dazzling experience for everyone.
Texas Instruments Engineering and Innovation Hall
Fulfilling our promise to keep content fresh, the next exhibit hall undergoing a change is the Engineering and Innovation Hall. This will be the last summer to make memories in one of our most popular halls the way it was when we opened. The hall will close September 3 and reopen in November.
Let your summer adventure begin when you take a non-stop trip to Level 4 where you'll gaze up at the second most complete T. rex skeleton ever found. Visit Stan in his new home at the top of our escalator.
