HOURS: Everyday: 8:00am - 4:30pm

Take a closer look inside the Dino Den by viewing our instagram reel here.

Dino Discovery Den at the Carlisle Visitors Center is hands down one of the coolest FREE indoor play spaces we’ve ever been to. 😍 (it is intended for littles under 4 ft. tall)

It even brought out the kid in me & had me crawling through the tunnels and climbing up to the tree house (it was a pretty snug fit for me & made me realize I may have a little bit of claustrophobia 😅)

Some of the fun includes:

 🦖 Tons of dino-themed fun

 🌳 Awesome indoor tree house

 🦕 Tunnels to explore w/windows to mini dino scenes

 🧩 Puzzles & educational activities

🧱 Soft building blocks

 🔎 Dino scavenger hunt

 🌧 Perfect for a rainy day

It’s amazing how much fun stuff they’ve packed into such a small space, in so many creative ways & this is just one area of the visitor’s center. There is a lot more to explore in the center and surrounding reservation. My son also loved the animals on the walls (taxidermy) and the rescue birds and owls outside 🦉

 🎂 They also have multiple rooms available to rent for events, making this such a fun place to host a children’s birthday party.

We just love it here & know your littles will too! 💕
