Bring your budding paleontologist to the Burke for monthly fossilized fun. Enjoy three prehistoric stations every month ranging from touching real fossils, making discoveries in the dig pit, solving dinosaur mysteries, dino dress-up and more. Activities and themes change monthly so there’s always something new!
This month, beat the heat and enter the Ice Age! See what you can find in the dig pit, learn the difference between a mastodon and a mammoth, get inspired by ice age teeth and claws at the touch table station, then make a saber tooth necklace.
Please note: I Dig Dinos is open to everyone but is geared toward ages 3-7.
