Dig In! Dig in to the ancient past and become a junior paleontologist. Learn how to identify the three kinds of rocks found across the globe, what makes a fossil, and about current research happening at the Burke. Then help the Burke with the scientific process of identifying and sorting real microfossils from the collections! Finally, get up close to the only real dinosaurs (including one of the best-preserved T. rex skulls in the world) on display in Washington state in the Fossils Uncovered gallery!
