May 2016
Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice Exhibit
05-28-2016 to 09-11-2016

Travel back in time and come face-to-face with dinosaurs in their prehistoric environment. Put on an insect costume, then buzz around a swampy bog. Meet touchable dinosaurs, coast down an icy slide and dig for fossils!

The exhibit features an immersive learning environment divided into three sections: two dinosaur habitats (warm and cold environments) and a field research station. The dinosaur environments include the flora and fauna that were present 65-70 million years ago, during the end of the Cretaceous period (when the last dinosaurs roamed the earth), and represent areas that are now part of North America.
