Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice
February 4 - June 4
Get ready for exciting dinosaur action as the Portsmouth Museums prepare for the arrival of some fantastic prehistoric beasts. Opening this February, the wonderful exhibit Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice will come roaring into the Children’s Museum of Virginia. On loan from the Minnesota Children’s Museum, this traveling exhibit builds on the popular fascination with dinosaurs and includes many science activities to challenge all ages. Children will go face-to-face with the prehistoric world and meet dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes. The exhibit, created for ages 3-10, will feature two distinct environments and a variety of activities. A Field Research Station also allows children to step into the role of paleontologists by uncovering fossils with brushes and create drawings of the dinosaur environment by using fossil rubbings and tracings.
