Jurassic Gardens Coming to Volo Auto Museum

One of the most popular photo spots at the Volo Auto Museum is a 1976 Ford “Truckasaurus.”

So while the museum was closed during the pandemic, upgrades were made around the grounds to add more “sauruses” for families to photograph.

When it reopens May 14, Volo Auto Museum will debut an indoor Jurassic Gardens adventure for guests. The new spot will feature dozens of lifelike animatronic dinosaurs, plus a gift shop, arcade, fossil dig and “lab.”

The auto museum with classic cars, automobiles from movies and a family fun area isn’t going anywhere. Families can still enjoy the cars, though some – including from movies like Fast 5, Ford vs. Ferrari, Ghostbusters (2016) and The Green Hornet – are being sold in an eBay auction to make room for the new feature.

Tickets to the museum and Jurassic Gardens are sold separately but can be purchased as a combo for guests that would like to see both areas.

The museum includes a kids area with three playgrounds, plus a Disney exhibit, an antique arcade gallery and cars for kids.
