Travel back to the Jurassic in the interactive DinoTracks exhibit. Walk over prehistoric footprints, hear and feel dinosaur footsteps, and come face-to-face with dinosaurs who made them. Uncover clues about dinosaur behavior -- and the dinosaurs themselves -- from the fossil footprints they left behind right here in New England.
