Durham museum plans Jurassic-themed egg hunt
Posted March 24, 2013
In a new spin on the classic Easter egg hunt, the Museum of Life and Science in Durham will host its first annual Dino Egg Hunt from Thursday to Easter Sunday.
Kids will look for five different dino eggs in a behind-the-scenes area of the museum's outdoor campus. All of the dino eggs will be filled with a science prize and some will include grand prize passes to the advance screening of the new Jurassic Park 3D movie on April 2 at the movie theater at The Streets at Southpoint in Durham.
Other activities include photo opportunities in a dinosaur nest, digging for fossils at the Dino dig site and dinosaur crafts.
The hunts are scheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m., Sunday. Tickets are $5 plus general admission (which is $14 for adults and $10 for kids ages 3 to 12). Different time slots are available for the activity.
Note: Only those collecting eggs need tickets. Other family members can accompany ticket holders as long as they have paid admission to the museum.
Pre-registration is highly recommended as space is limited. For details, call Museum Reservations at 919-220-5429, ext. 313, or go to the museum's website.
