Dinos: The Big Dig
5/24/2014 - 9/7/2014

Grab a shovel and dig in to Omaha Children’s Museum’s summer blockbuster, Dinos: The Big Dig! Uncover secrets of the past in this 10,000 square foot exhibit featuring life-size robotic dinosaurs.

Get eye-to-eye with a roaring T-Rex, meet an Apatosaurus family, crawl up and get face-to-face with a stegosaurus, go beneath the earth for an up-close view of a mom and baby Triceratops and much more!

Dig, explore and unearth fossils in the two story dig pit, make your way through the 40 foot fossil climber, take your photo with a T-Rex, create your own carnivore and herbivore dishes inside the Dino-Diner and climb aboard the Dino-Train* for a ride among these prehistoric creatures.

Museum Paleo-guides will lead daily programming including how to pan for real gemstones, unearth fossils, or piece together dinosaur skeletons. These hands-on activities combined with imaginative play as paleontologists will allow children to investigate dinosaurs in a whole new way! Want to take your findings home with you? Additional gemstone and fossil bags are available for purchase within the exhibit.

Join us this summer as we uncover secrets of the past during Dinos: The Big Dig at Omaha Children’s Museum! Exhibit opens Saturday, May 24th!
