Dino Days

May 19 - May 20

Join us for a roaring good weekend as we celebrate dinosaurs! Visit the Dinosaurs in Motion exhibit, look for fossils, and dig into hands-on activities and special dinosaur programs.

Meet a Paleontologist! Meet McWane Science Center’s very own paleontologist, Jun Ebersole, on Saturday 1:00 to 3:00 pm and on Sunday, 2:00 to 3:30 pm. Bring a fossil (one only please) to be identified, ask questions, and learn about Alabama’s ancient past.

Other activities include adding scales to our 15 foot dinosaur, competing in Dino challenges, make a fossil imprint to take home and much, much more.
