‘Dinosaur Revolution’ headed to Gray Fossil Site

Dinosaurs are roaming the region thanks to a traveling exhibit that opened at the East Tennessee State University and General Shale Brick Natural History Museum at the Gray Fossil Site on Saturday.
Created by Minotaur Mazes, Dinosaur Revolution includes fossils, informational displays, and a number of interactive activities, including the Mesozoic Missions that span 150 million years; a Climb Through Time on a wall of mysteries; the Make Tracks in the Triassic exercise that allows visitors to experience what it is like to crush the earth with gigantic feet; and a glide through the Jurassic.
Guests are invited to become “junior paleontologists” as they travel back through time to gather evidence, debunk popular myths, and learn why dinosaurs are one of the most successful survivors in earth’s history.
In addition to the exhibits, the center will also host Dinosaur Discovery School on Saturdays, Feb. 13 and March 20, from 2-4 p.m. for children in grades kindergarten through third grade, and on March 6 and April 17, from 2-4 p.m., for students in grades four, five, and six.
“This is a great opportunity for kids to learn about dinosaur existence in a fun, interactive setting,” said education coordinator Sarah Mullersman. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged. Walk-ins will be accepted only if space permits.
The Dinosaur Revolution exhibit will be at the Gray Fossil Site through May 16. All-access passes to the museum are $7 for children ages five through 12, $9 for seniors 65 and older, and $10 for adults. Museum hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week.
