June 8, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Included in general admission

The Dino Days of Summer return this June with Dinopalooza. Join us in celebrating the newest member of our flock, the Chicago Archaeopteryx, before it takes off for the rest of the summer. Find out how our new fossil friend shows scientists where past and present collide and understand what it really means to be a dinosaur.

The prehistoric party doesn’t stop there! Activities include a museum-wide scavenger hunt, a Box-o-Saurus craft, getting up close and personal with Norm the T. rex skull, life-size Archaeopteryx puppets, face painting, a photo booth, and more.

In honor of our new Jurassic pal, dinosaur and Jurassic Park costumes are encouraged!
