I'll have more about the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences' new exhibit "The World's Largest Dinosaurs" in the next couple of weeks.
It's at the Raleigh museum through April. But I took my kids over the weekend and took a few pictures during the member's preview on Saturday morning.
We ran through the exhibit quickly as we had to get to a soccer game, but it's impressive. There were lots of interactive pieces for kids. And the life-sized 60-foot-long, 11-foot tall Mamenchisaurus, which is used to teach visitors more about how these massive bodies worked, is impressive.
Not surprisingly, the dig pit, where kids can dig for fossils, was a hit with my kids and many of the others gathered there Saturday morning.
The exhibit is free for members; $14 for adults; $12 for seniors, students and military; $8 for children, ages 3 to 12.
