Dinosaurs Return to the MS Museum of Natural Science

The new exhibit at the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science opens tomorrow.  Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice.  Here is a portion of the write-up from the museum's webpage:

This exhibit transports families back to the Cretaceous Period (145 - 65 million years ago), the time when dinosaurs last lived on earth. Children will go face-to-face with the prehistoric world.

The dinosaur exhibit, created for children ages 3-10, will feature two distinct environments and a variety of activities. A Field Research Station allows children to step into the role of a paleontologist by uncovering fossils with brushes and creating drawings of the dinosaur environment using fossil rubbings and tracings!

Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice is the first child-centered exhibit in the country dedicated to expanding the understanding on dinosaur habitat and range.
