Cool! The Long Island Children's Museum offers prehistoric dinosaur fun

Written by

It looks like T-Rex and his pals are taking a trip to the suburbs.

Although families flock to the American Museum of Natural History for a glimpse at these prehistoric giants, the Long Island Children Museum is hosting a dino-tastic traveling exhibit beginning Jan 27 that’s certainly worth a look.

Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice, created by the Minnesota Children's Museum and nationally sponsored by The David B. Jones Foundation, offers an immersive experience for all visitors, including a glimpse at dinos’ habitats, a dig station that allows little ones to get their hands dirty and even the opportunity to venture around a swampy bog in an insect costume (simultaneously icky and awesome, of course).

If you’re in need of a little weekend getaway and have no problem venturing back to primitive times, this is the perfect way to any Jurassic Park lovers’ heart.

Looking for more weekend fun? Try exploring one of these indoor activities for kids, visit these kids’ attractions or do a little shopping in one of these kids’ clothing stores.
