Dinosaurs are Back!
Springfield Science Museum
January 23, 2008
Giant moving, roaring dinosaurs are invading the Science Museum from Feb. 9 through May 11, 2008, in the exhibition Dinosaurs! Land, Sea and Air.
This year's exhibit is bigger than ever with lifelike dinosaurs that stomp, swim and soar.
Visitors will encounter Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops with two young, Stegosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, Tenontosaurus with three Deinonychus, and Corythosaurus with a nest of hatchlings. The giant marine reptiles are Mosasaurus and Elasmosaurus, and a flying Pteranodon soars above its fellow creatures.
The exhibit also includes a visitor-activated robotic dinosaur "skeleton" and stations where children can make dinosaur track rubbings and be paleontologists as they dig for fossils and "bone up" on prehistoric facts.
There will be a special exhibit fee of $3 per person in addition to museum admission for all visitors ages 3 and up to see Dinosaurs! Land, Sea and Air.
