Bring your family to join the Witte family during the Dinosaur Family Reunion! Explore the two special exhibitions, Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family and Antarctic Dinosaurs, and visit our Super Saturday Dinosaur Family Reunion booths set up around the museum.
Engage with experts, learn how paleontologists transport fossils down a mountain, use tracks to determine the approximate height of a dinosaur, create dinosaur art and meet paleontologist Dr. Thomas Adams.
FOSSIL IDENTIFICATION: 1 – 3 p.m.
Have you ever wondered if you may have found a fossil? During the Dinosaur Family Reunion, the Witte’s own paleontologist, Dr. Thomas Adams, will be on hand to help identify your findings!
How do I prepare for identification? Bring as much information (location found, etc.) on your discovery as possible. Please limit of one specimen per person to allow everyone an opportunity.
