Dino Day


Dig into Dinos on our third annual Dino Day!

Join us for a day that is full of paleontological fun that is as big as a Titanosaur!

Activities for sauropods and other bigger dinos (age 5 and up):

  • Dino Prints: Step into the footprint of a dinosaur! Can you fit? How many friends do you need to help you fill up the footprint? All day on the First Floor
  • Measure a Dino: Stretch out our spools to see how long a few favorite dinosaurs really were! All day in Possible-opolis
  • Dino Dig: Dig deep in our sand table to see if you can discover any dinosaurs or creatures from before the dinosaurs! 10 a.m.–4 p.m. in the Rooftop Clubhouse
  • Salt Dough Fossils: Cast and create your very own take-home fossil! 10 a.m.–1 p.m. in the Rooftop Clubhouse
  • Amber Creations: Craft an amber fossil of your very own! 10 a.m.–4 p.m. in the Art Studio
  • Dino Yoga: Take a trip back in time as we transform into a variety of dinosaurs, 10:30–11 a.m. in Possible-opolis
  • Dino Art: Collaborative Art with Jennikasaurus, 2–4 p.m. in the Art Studio

Activities for hatchlings 5 and under:

  • Dino Bath Time: Even dinosaurs need to get clean! Come scrub and dunk our dino chicks, and reinforce how important bath time is for all warm-blooded critters. 10 a.m.–4 p.m. in the Wildernest
  • Meltosaurus: We’ll practice fine motor skills while freeing dinosaurs trapped in ice!, 12–1 p.m. in the Wildernest

All activities are free with museum admission, while supplies last. No registration is required.
