Bring the family to PPHM for Dino Day! Kids will be able to excavate a dig site on our East Lawn, make fossils and more from 1:00 – 4:00 PM. From kids to kids-at-heart, everyone will enjoy this new event that celebrates October as Archaeology Month. There will be discounted $5 admission for everyone the entire day – 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Pack your dusting brushes and excavation tools for PPHM’s first ever Dino Day on October 13th! Activities will be held museum-wide from 1-4pm, but a $5 discounted admission all day (9 am to 5 pm) encourages future paleontologists to spend the day exploring PPHM’s Paleontology exhibit before activities begin.
“Dinosaurs remind us of not only our past but how connected things of the past are to the present,” stated Jason Herbert, Education Assistant. “Kids will not only get to dig into the past but see how it relates to elements they see every day.”
Children are encouraged to come with any questions they have for our “Ask a Paleontologist” activity. Dr. Bill Mueller, assistant curator of paleontology from the Museum of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, will be our onsite paleontologist. The dino-filled afternoon will also include a live “dinosaur relative” show, an excavation site on PPHM’s East Lawn, making fossils, and more!
