Dinosaur Discoveries: Ancient Fossils, New Ideas

Jun 3, 2017 - Jan 14, 2018

The Longmont Museum’s hands-on summer exhibition series for families is back with an engaging show that reveals what living, breathing dinosaurs were really like!


This exhibition highlights current research by scientists from the American Museum of Natural History and other leading paleontologists around the world. Visitors will see real bones from a T-Rex found in Littleton and a soil sample of the K-T boundary, which shows the point in time 65 million years ago when the asteroid that caused mass extinction of the dinosaurs hit the Earth. Kids can get their hands dirty excavating bones in our dinosaur dig pit and feed our brood of chickens – the feathered, living descendants of dinosaurs!
