Fort Worth Museum of Science & History - 
"DinoLabs" Exhibit

See the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History’s reimagined exhibit, “DinoLabs.” Who knew you could find dinosaurs in your own backyard? “DinoLabs” and “DinoDig®” bring the fascinating story of dinosaurs discovered in North Texas to life with full articulations of dinosaur skeletons native to the region and a dig site replicating a local paleontological field site. What did dinosaurs look like when they roamed the earth, millions of years ago? Filled with cutting-edge technology and treasured artifacts from the Museum’s paleontology collection, this updated exhibit will enthrall, entertain and engage. Did they have scaled skin in muted colors that provided exactly the right kind of camouflage? Did they have feathers? Were they brightly colored and vivid? Science tells us the answer to these questions is yes! With “DinoGlow” you can imagine how. Tickets $16 adults, $13 ages 2-18.
