Dinos and Books: A Reading Focus!

Mark's lifelong work with Children's books and reading continues with Traveling Dinos.

From the beginning, to the end, books are incorporated in a way seen in no other museum. As reference points, explanations, inspiration, and shear fabulousness, great books help the museum come to life for your kiddos!

Did you know every classic children's fiction/non fiction series features at least one dinosaur book?
From Magic Tree House, The Magic School Bus, The A to Z Mysteries, to The Boxcar Kids and beyond. 
New Dino Fiction and Science Non- fiction is coming at a rate like we've seen with few other areas of interest.

Over and over we've seen hard to reach kids connect with something in the museum that captivates them, which opens the pathway for you to guide them in areas of interest.

One of the coolest things that happens regularly is when we see a kid sitting in the middle of the hubbub of the visit leafing through one of the displayed books, lost in the pages.

Magic does happen here!
After all, it's what we do!
You did know you were in the Magic Business right?


Imagine… your kids enter your gym, classroom, library or theater and transport into an almost magical museum experience with visual, aural, and tactile hands on exhibits.
They can and They do with   Traveling Dinos in your building!

A Complete and Interactive,
Dinosaur Museum Visit!
The Wonder, The Science, The Books and The Pure Magic of Dinosaurs await your KIDs in this Complete Museum STREAM Experience, and Fabulous In-House Field Trip. Plus, It's a Lot of Fun Too!
We'll transform your large classroom, library, stage or gym into a Pop-Up Museum that will wow, enchant, and inspire your kids!

An Amazing Adventure in Stations

The Welcome
First stop, your kids meet Mark Daniel, a master storyteller, with great dinosaur books to share, and show and tell to help bring the dinos to life.

The Guided Museum / Walk Through Tour
Tami and Mark share an amazing collection of Real Fossils, Models and Exhibits, featuring your kids favorites!
The Velociraptor Experience
"Vella" is Traveling Dinos first full size dinosaur. She is an expertly created replica that finds her posed in a pounce position, which places her at kid level and.
The Allosaurus Encounter
Your kids come face to face with Mighty Al, a full size Allosaurus cast replica skull, and they can put their hand in a gigantic allosaurus  footprint too!

Independent Explore Time
Explore the museum and their favorites up close with magnifying glasses and solve fossil mysteries with the digital microscopes.
The Touch Zone Table
Some of the coolest fossils ever are waiting for your kids to explore, hold and study like a piece of leg bone from an Allosaurus, a chunk of skull bone from Triceratops, dinosaur coprolite (Dino Poop) and more awesome stuff!
The Paleo Art Gallery
Enjoy the incredible Paleo Art Murals of Phil Wilson, the watercolors of Stacy Lewis,  and Traveling Dinos art by Mike Ferrin!
Plus, the Real Fossils, models, displays and exhibits that make Traveling Dinos an unforgettable experience for your kids!
The Collection
An amazing 30 year and growing collection, your kids will love seeing a combination of Real Fossils along with Museum Quality Dinosaur Replicas up close.
Mark has carefully assembled a quality collection with acquisitions of high interest to your students. This exhibit can easily be placed for the day in a classroom, large stage, etc.

We add in Music, special lighting, and set design that combine to make this a memorable learning experience, and a WOW for your kids!

A Note: Often in museums you get to the see the cast replicas of the dinosuars and fossils, with the originals stored away. While still cool, nothing replaces the real thing. With Traveling Dinos you may see more real fossils than a visit to many museums combined! Plus there's always something new in this constantly growing collection as we curate exhibits, and strive to tell the story of these magnificent creatures.   All to inspire your future scientists, paleontologists, artists, teachers, and dreamers!
