“with real dinosaur tracks”

If you like dinosaurs, you'll love our 200 million-year-old fossil trackway, interactive exhibits and the chance to cast your own dinosaur footprint to take home. There is a daily admission fee at Dinosaur State Park. Adults ages 13 and up are $6 youth ages 6 - 12 are $2 and children under 6 are free. Connecticut seniors over 65 years of age are eligible for a Charter Oak Pass (proof of residency is required). The Connecticut Valley has a long history of fossil track discoveries. Outstanding specimens uncovered in 19th century brownstone quarries found their way into museums throughout the world. A new chapter in the history of such discoveries was written in 1966 when hundreds of tracks were exposed in Rocky Hill. This remarkable site became Dinosaur State Park.
