This exhibit was on view January 27 - May 13, 2018.
Travel back to the Cretaceous Period and come face to face with dinosaurs of all sizes in their prehistoric environments. The immersive exhibit takes you to two dinosaur habitats (warm and cold environments), as well as a Field Research Station (complete with a Big Dig component), where junior paleontologists will experiment with materials and tools.
What you’ll do:
• Examine a touchable T-Rex and Triceratops and make observations and comparisons, important steps in scientific thinking
• Climb into a Troodon’s nest and play with dinosaur eggs
• Uncover dinosaur bones and examine fossils in a dig station
• Cooperate and collaborate as you help complete an over-sized puzzle
• Put on insect costumes and buzz around a swampy bog
