Dinos Under Glass
Visitors to the Mitchell Park Domes will step back in time – way back – when they enter “Dinos Under Glass,” a prehistoric exhibit, in the Tropical Dome, beginning Sat., July 13. The Domes are located at 524 S. Layton Blvd.
Four model dinosaurs, ranging in length from 9 to 16 feet, are nestled among plants of the Tropical Dome. Allosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and Dromaeosaurus are easily viewed from the walking paths. Educational, interpretive signage is located throughout the exhibit. To complement the “prehistoric” experience, children, as well as adults, will have the opportunity to step inside a dinosaur “fossil” footprint, to take part in an interactive scavenger hunt in search of a dinosaur nest, and to test their knowledge on a crossword puzzle. The exhibit runs through late fall, so it can be incorporated into science field trips to The Domes. All four dinosaur models were purchased by the Friends of The Domes.
Hours: Mon through Fri. 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
Sat. & Sun. 9 a.m.–4 p.m.
