Dinosaurs: Land of Fire & Ice at the Kidzeum of Health and Science

Looks like this event has already taken place.

Sat, May 27 – Sun, Sep 03, 2023 • 9:00am - 4:00pm

412 East Adams Street, Springfield, IL 62701

The new exhibit, Dinosaurs: Land of Fire & Ice, comes to the Kidzeum May 27th.

Long before the Midwest was populated by corn fields and cows, dinosaurs roamed the land. Coming to Kidzeum in May 2023, a brand-new exhibit created by Minnesota Children’s Museum will allow children and adults to explore dinosaur habitats to better understand how these mysterious animals lived and use inquiry skills to examine what they left behind. Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice transports families back to the Cretaceous Period (145 – 65 million years ago), the time when dinosaurs last lived on earth.

Children will go face-to-face with the prehistoric world and meet dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes. The exhibit, created for children ages 3 – 10, will feature two distinct environments and a variety of activities.
