A trip back in time at Dinosaurs Unearthed

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Time is running out to see an amazing exhibit at the Grand Rapids Public Museum called “Dinosaurs Unearthed.” It features 15 animatronic dinosaurs and 28 fossil specimens and casts.

Third grade students from Hope Academy of West Michigan got the chance to walk through the exhibit and see the dinosaurs come to life through motion activated sensors. The exhibit tells the story of dinosaurs and explains that at some point, many of them were feathered, and their ancestry can be traced back to birds. Kids can see some of their favorites, like the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, and Triceratops.

At the end of the exhibit is a fun interactive area where kids can dig for fossils, play with dinosaurs, and make their own dinosaur. There are also teacher kits that can guide them through the exhibit and allow them to learn about each dinosaur, and compare and contrast their qualities.

“Dinosaurs Unearthed” is only at the Grand Rapids Public Museum until April 27. It’s $12 for adults and $7 for kids. Museum members only have to pay $2 for adults and children are free.
