The Children’s Museum and Science Center will be closed January 1-23, 2018 to prepare for a new exhibit. Beginning January 24, 2018, it will re-open with the “Dinosaur Revolution” exhibit, which will run through August 26, 2018.
Guests will have the opportunity to become a junior paleontologist and find evidence of dinosaur doings, learn why dinosaurs are one of the most successful survivors in earth’s history and unearth a shocking discovery: dinosaurs may not be extinct!
Said Leigh White, curator of Education for the Children’s Museum and Science Center:
“Visitors will be able to live as the dinosaurs lived, discover new answers to old questions, and explore what it takes to study dinosaurs. This exhibit is very interactive and even includes a maze.”
Explorers will also be able to travel through time and get a dinosaur’s view, as well as experience what it’s like to crush the earth beneath gigantic feet. Hands-on activities like the Mystery Fossil Dig and Create-a-Dino engage young minds and encourage growth.
The Children’s Museum and Science Center is in the Imperial Centre for the Arts and Sciences, located at 270 Gay Street in downtown Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Plan to come for the exhibit and hear the dinosaurs roar!
