NEW! Dinosaurs

NEW! Dinosaurs

Inquiry Room Investigation

Do your students really “dig” dinos? Take your experience to the next level with this hands-on companion program for our show-stopping Expedition: Dinosaur exhibit! Learn how our visiting dinosaurs use an amazing process called adaptation to find food and stay out of danger, then build your own dinosaur with custom adaptations. Discover the tools and skills that real paleontologists use to turn fossil clues into science-backed stories about our planet’s past. Dig for fossils and draw your own conclusions about what happened millions of years ago in the region we now call home!

In-person capacity may be limited in compliance with public health guidelines in effect on the day of your visit.
