Kick-off the 20th Anniversary on February 25 at 5:30pm. Participants will receive free admission, although young children may not enjoy the slideshow and tour as much as other activities we have planned.

Yes, February 26 the museum is FREE! If you haven’t been here in a while, come check out the new exhibits and projects we’ve completed. At 3pm we’ll have cookies to share and at 4pm we’ll have a dinosaur pinata that we’ll need help cracking open!

February 27, the fossil prep lab tour and play-doh for the dino sculpting contest is included with regular admission rates. We’ll be staying open late until 7pm to make sure everyone who wants to can see behind the scenes at the museum.

February 28, the kid’s educational activities will start at 11am, 1pm, 3pm, and 5pm. They are included with regular admission and will be held in the St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site’s classroom.
