    This event is for current museum members only. Registration is $10 per family (after MCM member discount.)

    • Super-Royalty Scavenger hunt with prizes
    • Superpower necklaces & Crown Jewel pendants

    Dinosaurs are awesome. Space is awesome. Put them together and you get an epic mashup of titanosaur/starship proportions! MCM members are invited to direct their spaceships/time machines to the museum for a members-only night of science-inspired crafts, games, snacks, and more.

    Dinos in Space Special Activities

    • Fossil Dig: Calling all budding paleontologists! Help us excavate fossils and learn about how ancient critters and plants became fossilized in the first place.
    • Dino Drama Dioramas: Visit the Art Studio to create your own epic dinosaur diorama to take home.
    • 3, 2, 1, Blast Off! Wind Tunnel Flying Machines: Get crafty and learn about aerodynamics, all at the same time! Use up-cycled materials to create your own contraptions and then see how they fly in our wind tunnel.
    • Scavenger Hunt: Search through time and space (AKA the whole museum) and win awesome prizes.
    • Space Snacks: Grab a nibble before blasting off on your adventure (or grab dinner from the Lunchbox Cafe)
    • And, as always, enjoy members-only playtime in the museum
