The Dig

113 114 In the heart of the Roberts Pavilion, behind a red vintage Land Cruiser sits The Dig, a place where junior paleontologists can uncover their love of science and the ancient world.

Kids can take their first steps toward becoming a paleontologist by brushing though recycled SAFDEK to uncover plant and animal fossils.  Children of all ages can try to identify fossils from an Albertosaurus, Archaeopteryx, or the ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex.Daily “Fossil Hunt” explorations teach kids how to identify different fossil types like Trace, Cast and True Form fossils.

The Land Cruiser encourages dramatic play and socialization skills as children are whisked away to a make-believe fossil excavation site.
