The N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences' "The World's Largest Dinosaurs" continues at the downtown Raleigh museum.

The exhibit, which runs through April 12, explores the bodies of the long-necked and long-tailed sauropods. They stretched as long as 130 feet and lived as a species for about 140 million years. The exhibit uncovers how these dinosaurs lived for so long despite their massive bodies and long necks that required their heart, lungs and other organs to work so hard.

I wrote about it earlier in one of my Friday destination posts. We have a new image gallery that features scenes of the popular exhibit. This is a fun one for kids - a great stop if you're looking for something to do during this upcoming long weekend.
