Dinosaur Days

Sunday, April 14, from Noon to 3 pm 
Monday, April 15 to Friday, April 19, from 10 am to 3 pm

Museum admission required

 

From the 150-million-year-old Brontosaurus skeleton in the Great Hall to the award-winning, life-sized sculpture of Torosaurus outside, dinosaurs and the Yale Peabody Museum go hand in hand. Join us for our annual celebration of paleontology and dinosaurs during the entire April public school vacation week. There will be plenty of hands-on activities for the whole family, including our famous fossil dig and an extensive fossil touch table. You'll also have the chance to meet paleontology professionals and graduate students and learn about their interesting research. Don’t miss it!

 

Thanks to Hopkins School for sponsoring this year's Dinosaur Days as well as our annual Paleo-Knowledge Bowl!
