Modern Dinosaurs? Member Opening Party

March 8 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Tonight is the night! We’re hosting a Members’ Exclusive Opening for Modern Dinosaurs? If you’re a MAP Member, join us this evening from 4:00 to 7:00 pm and preview this exciting exhibition!

Modern Dinosaurs? explores how mysterious beasts became familiar icons of past life on our planet as science transformed our understanding of natural history. Encounter full-size dinosaur skeletons, scientific instruments, original letters and works that fueled a scientific revolution. Discover natural selection in the age of the dinosaurs as you consider the evidence indicating birds descended from dinosaurs and as a result, should be considered modern dinosaurs.

Modern Dinosaurs? has something for everyone. Kids and kids at heart will be amazed at the life-size dinosaur fossils, interactive video game and touch screen exploration!
