Walk through a forest with life-sized dinosaurs at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle this summer. These creatures move and make sounds as you approach them. You’ll even see babies hatching from their eggs.

Along the path, signs are posted identifying each type of dinosaur and their characteristics, along with a wall of replica dinosaur fossils. You’ll also learn about the creator of these robotic creatures, Dino Don.

Dinosaur Discovery, the name of this exhibit, is open now through Monday, September 6, during the zoo’s hours, 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m. daily. General admission is $5 and $4 for members. Pay admission at the exhibit entrance.

Woodland Park Zoo is located at 5500 Phinney Avenue North in Seattle.
