Is your child a paleontologist in the making? Do they know the difference between a triceratops and a pterodactyl? Or if they are like my little guy, run around the house growling and pretending to be a T-Rex? If so, then get your tickets for this weekend’s Dinosaur Fest at the Sierra College Natural History Museum.
This Sunday, May 1 from 9am-4pm, your family can discover the world of the dinosaurs and learn all about science at this fun and interactive event. Everything from fossil digging, physics demonstrations, anatomy dissections, planetarium shows, crafts and even live reptiles to play with… there will be something for the entire family to enjoy. If your child is fascinated with science (what kid isn’t??), then this will be an event not to miss.
Located at the Natural History museum on the Sierra College Campus (5000 Rocklin Road, Rocklin), this museum in a non-profit, volunteer run organization. All of the proceeds from this event are used to help maintain the exhibits and provide programs throughout the year for families to enjoy. Tickets to this event can be purchased on their website and are $10 for adults, $7 for children ages 4-12. Under the age of 4 is free.
My kids are excited to check out the exploding watermelon exhibit and the tie die booth…it’s going to be a fun (and possibly messy) weekend! We hope to see your family enjoying the world of science and dinosaurs with us.
