Millions of years ago, Arkansas was a hub for prehistoric sea creatures. Now we have real, fossilized remnants that can be found in nature, as well as museums and roadside sculptures that you can visit. From abandoned theme parks to roadside attractions, Arkansas has some weird places to spot prehistoric creatures. Let’s look at some of their bizarre hiding spots as well as upcoming exhibits.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
It’s always neat to tour a museum’s dinosaur exhibit, but were you aware of the more unusual hiding spots? Share your prehistoric experiences with us in the comments below!
We mentioned a pretty nifty antique shop in Mammoth Spring, if you’re really into antiquing you should visit this town.
