If you have budding paleontologists in your life, the Burke Museum is where you’ll want to spend Sunday. For over twenty-five years, the Museum’s Dino Day has been a favorite family outing for dinosaur lovers of all ages.
At this fun annual event, the Museum showcases the best of the its fossil collection with
dinosaur experts and professional paleontologists there to give information and answer questions.
The kiddos can jump into the dig pit where they can search for relics and/or crack open rocks and find a fossil to keep. They can also try their skill at drawing their own Dino with a little guidance from scientific illustrators.
All ages will enjoy seeing (and touching) a variety of fossils as well as learning about recent discoveries. All activities are included with museum admission.
