How does Dinosauria support the Detroit Zoological Society’s (DZS) Mission?

By attending events hosted by the Detroit Zoo, you are directly supporting the DZS’s mission of Celebrating and Saving Wildlife and Wild Places. Your event admission provides support so that the DZS can continue to demonstrate extraordinary leadership in conservation, animal welfare, education and environmental sustainability.

Is Dinosauria sensory friendly?

The Detroit Zoological Society is committed to accommodating individuals with diverse needs and learning abilities. We aim to support guests of all abilities during their visit in an effort to be as welcoming and inclusive as possible.

During your Dinosauria adventure, there will be fog, intermittent loud sounds, water features and smells. The dinosaurs’ animatronic movements are life-like and sometimes sudden. Educational engagement is hands-on, and the area may become crowded at times.
