Dig pits and interactive kiosks allow aspiring paleontologists to get in on the action as they uncover discoveries new and old. And, for the first time, a terrible T. rex is outside on the Museum’s front lawn ready to greet visitors. Dinosaurs Unearthed will be open until Labor Day, September 7.
Through September 15 – Before the River: Florida Fossil – Explore specimens from the Florida fossil record to learn more about the geography that shaped our state. Florida was under water during the Cretaceous Era when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. The state’s current landscape of rivers, swamps, and lakes were carved by retreating waters during the Cenozoic Era. Some of the most fascinating land and sea animals that ever lived, from fierce super sharks to giant mammoths and saber toothed cats, called Florida home as the new landmass emerged from the receding ocean. One only needs to look along the shores of our St. Johns River to find fossils and uncover the clues they hold about life in prehistoric Florida. This exhibit is on display in the lobby.
Fridays – $5 Fridays – Every Friday, come to MOSH to enjoy $5 admission and extended hours. The Museum is open late ‘til 8 p.m. (Note: Additional discounts or coupons are not permitted.)
