10/10: Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries

Posted By on Wed, Oct 7, 2009 at 4:34 PM

Apparently it’s impossible for kids to overdose on dinosaurs. The Cleveland Museum of Natural History (1 Wade Oval Dr., 216.231.4600) is happy to feed that jones. In addition to its three permanent dinosaur replicas, it opens a new exhibit Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries today, focusing on how scientific and technological advances have allowed us to learn more about dinosaurs’ appearances and lifestyles, based on evidence we already have. It includes an enormous diorama recreating an ancient forest in an area in China where important fossil discoveries have been made and offers evidence for various theories on why dinosaurs became extinct. Museum admission ranges from $6-$9; it’s open 10 a.m-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday (until 10 p.m. Wednesday) and noon-5 p.m. Sunday. — Anastasia Pantsios
