Do you dig dinos? Every weekend in March, channel your inner paleontologist and explore how fossils ranging from the largest dinosaurs to the tiniest plant pollens help us learn about prehistoric life on earth. Each weekend you can:

  • Uncover and examine mystery fossils in the Dino Dig Pit
  • See fossils from the Burke collections not normally on exhibit
  • Make a monstrous “Potatosaurus” to take home!
  • Make plastic crafts you can take home in the Plastics Unwrapped exhibit
  • Enjoy guided tours of Burke exhibits during our "Best of the Burke" tours every Saturday at 1 pm!
