Dino Days of Summer

School’s out for summer and, let’s face it, it’s hard to keep the kiddos entertained and intellectually stimulated. Here’s where the Liberty Science Center has you covered! Enjoy their Dino Days of Summer from June 29th – July 7th! As per the LSC:

“Travel back in time 150 million years with us as we celebrate the return of our summer adventure, Dino Dig! In this outdoor fossil site, inspired by the Hell Creek Formation in Montana, you’ll dig through 35 tons of sand to uncover more than 60 true-to-life fossils.

Be on the lookout for T-rex bones and teeth, a 6-foot long Triceratops skull, and – new this year! – a zone with Jurassic marine reptiles.

During this weeklong celebration, the building will be stuffed with dinosaur adventures, including dino dance parties, bone pathology labs, and even a prehistoric touch tank where you can touch creatures that were alive during the age of dinosaurs.”


Let the kids live out their Jurassic Park adventures!
