Fossil Day

Saturday, October 13

10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

An event millions of years in the making
Discover our world class fossils - both visitor favorites and rarely-seen specimens - and meet Dr. Alex Hastings, our new Fitzpatrick Chair of Paleontology! 

Dr. Hastings will introduce himself on the Atrium Stage at 10:30 a.m., followed by a meet and greet with dinosaur lovers of all ages. Then from noon to 4 p.m., try your hand at make-and-take activities that explore the fascinating things that fossils can tell us. Check out our Object ID Day event, as well! 

Included in museum admission.
