On Exhibit: Be the Dinosaur
Eat, sleep & live like a dinosaur! May 12 - September 3, 2018
What was a day like in the life of a dinosaur? How might they have lived? Now you can experience it! Stomp around prehistoric times as you get to “Be the Dinosaur.” This exhibit uses virtual technology so you can live like your favorite dinosaurs.
Learn what food you had to hunt to stay healthy. Find out if you had to take naps or were able to swim. Whether you’re 9 or 99, you can use virtual simulation to unleash your wild side!
Besides virtual technology, there will also be hands-on aspects to the exhibit. You can explore a dig pit to find fossils, examine a triceratops skull, and more!
