Historic Grapevine, Texas has a new attraction for budding dino hunters.

The summer program ‘All Tracks Lead to Grapevine’ runs until July 31 featuring prehistoric adventure for visitors of all ages.

It includes the Dino-Dig, an interactive dig site in search of dinosaur fossils at the Grapevine Tower Gallery.

There are photo ops with the mighty T-Rex, while panels throughout the gallery will educate visitors on the fascinating world of dinosaurs.

The Grapevine Tower Gallery exhibit showcases the Western Interior Seaway that once covered North Texas during the Cretaceous Period.

For $1, visitors will learn about the science of paleontology, discover different dinosaur species that roamed the area and explore the geologic timescale.

Each Saturday in June, the exhibit will feature Dino Talks with Grapevine Fossil Hunter Murray Cohen.

Cohen attracted worldwide media attention last year after discovering a new type of dinosaur jawbone at Lake Grapevine.

He will share his experience as he speaks on fossil hunting, making casts of dinosaur tracks, as well as jacketing, mapping and collection techniques.

Guests can also see where the dinosaur discoveries were made by visiting Grapevine Observation Tower for $3 per ticket.

Both the Grapevine Tower Gallery and the Grapevine Observation Gallery are open daily.

The Grapevine Vintage Railroad presents Dinos on the Tracks.

These train excursions will include fun activities and a special narration about different dinosaurs from the Perot Museum’s paleontologist Dr. Ron Tykoski.

There will also be fossils and educational presentations in the Cotton Belt Depot on select dates. The excursions run Fridays through July 19. Tickets cost $10 – $12, and can be secured in advance at www.GVRR.com.
