Boonshoft Museum’s Dinosaur Discovery, the newest exhibition running from January 26-April 14, 2019, will showcase dinosaurs that roamed Earth during the Mesozoic era – the “Age of Reptiles” that ended 65 million years ago!
Giant murals set the scene as visitors discover how dinosaurs lived and what they ate – and how paleontologists know the answers to these questions.
As they wind their way through the interactive maze, guests will be given a passport so they can answer questions at nine activity stations found throughout the exhibit and explore the basic “big questions” that all beginners have about dinos.
“Exhibitions like this one that engage visitors of all ages are a wonderful way for families to learn and explore together,” notes Dawn Kirchner, Vice President of Education. “From costumes that help children see themselves in the sciences to the chance to examine real fossils, there truly is something for everyone.”
As they come-eye-to-eye with a Syntarsus, an animatronic Triceratops (featured image) known as “Cera”, and even a T-Rex skull, visitors will journey back in time in a way that just might serve as the first step in turning that 7-year-old with a love for dinosaurs today into the scientific researcher of tomorrow.
