New exhibit showcases the inner workings of dinosaurs' bodies

Posted October 15, 2014

The exhibit offers a number of interactive experiences.

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.
