On this day thirty years ago, Steven Spielberg dropped a classic film that continues to have an impact in entertainment to this day—Jurassic Park. What followed in the aftermath of the first installment, which grossed almost a billion at the box office (the highest-grossing movie ever at the time of its release), was winning over twenty major awards including three Academy Awards, an eventual induction into the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for, of course, being culturally significant, and two immediate sequels released in 1997 and 2001 respectively. And if you ever want to revisit the films, you'll need a guide to the Jurassic Park movies in order to dive in.

In 2015, the Jurassic Park series returned for another trilogy, which has since gone on to add to its overall box office numbers. 2022's Jurassic World Dominion completed the second trilogy, and while it's probably too soon for another round of movies (it was a fourteen year wait between Jurassic Park III and Jurassic World), it's never to late to watch for the first time if you haven't seen it already, or re-watch for the millionth if you're a huge fan.

Below is a look at all of the Jurassic Park films in chronological order, along with guide on how to watch them.
