Got a Jurassic-loving junior on your hands? From dusting off old bones to learning what a Brachiosaurus ate, we’ve dug up some pint-sized paleontologist fun. Scroll through our slideshow to learn where to get the dirt on these giant creatures in and near San Diego.

Roynon Museum of Paleontology

A hidden North San Diego gem. Packed with fossils, a T-Rex tooth and prehistoric bug trapped in Amber, this small museum packs a prehistoric punch. Come with a group and hear the owner/paleontologist talk. Score a shark tooth or geode to take home in the gift store.

Cost: $12/adult; $8/youth (5-17 yrs.); $5/child (2-4 yrs.); free for children under 2
