DINOSAURS ARE TAKING OVER MUSEUM OF DISCOVERY! What better way to celebrate the opening of “Dinosaurs: Fossils Exposed,” the feature exhibit opening Saturday, January 18, than with a dino party complete with prehistoric activities and demos! The fun runs from 10am to 3pm.
Here are some of the activities we have planned (subject to change):
-Meet a paleontologist
-Make dino tracks
-Create your own Jurassic Park sound effects
-Excavate a chocolate chip cookie
-Dig the layers of the Earth (Sensory play, great for littles)
-Dinosaur loose parts play (great for littles)
Dino Day at Museum of Discovery is included in regular museum admission or free for museum members.
“Dinosaurs: Fossils Exposed” explores the bones and fossils belonging to the giant creatures that once roamed the Earth. Visitors can view and even touch six full dinosaur skeletal molds including a Triceratops, Tyrannosaurs Rex and Velociraptor. There are additional molds of skulls, arms, legs, eggs, footprints and a 6-foot-1 Apatosaurus femur. Visitors will also enjoy a dig box where they can use paleontology tools to unearth dinosaur bones. The exhibit will remain at the museum until July 18 (date subject to change.)
