Today we visited the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City thanks to @Jerseymomblog and it was so much fun! If you have kept up with my blog these past few years, you know its a favorite of ours (see my post on the infinity climber launch!)
Every time I go to the Liberty Science Center it’s like nostalgia for me. I remember when it first opened in 1993, we took a field trip there for my second grade class. Back then it seemed so huge and never ending and now going as an adult it seems much smaller then I remember, but still so much packed into it and off course it’s always changing. I love knowing that my kids see it as I used to when I was younger, a world of amazing science and knowledge.
Today’s agenda was the brand new “Dino Dig” exhibit. With a huge focus on real replicas of dinosaurs and fossils, families can get in and dig deep for fossils outdoors and see real scale size dinosaur bones.
I found it amazing that they took actual bones and fossils and casted them to create actual detailed replicas of the real things. It’s the closest to being a real paleontologist that you and your child can get without actually being one. And what’s better than digging up dino-bones and fossils then doing it with a backdrop of NYC behind you?!
The Dino Dig Exhibit will run now through September 4th 2017.
Channel your inner paleontologist by digging fossils in 35 tons of sand at “Jack Horner’s Dino Dig. Meet Mac’s scariest residents and learn about the relationship with dinosaurs and reptiles. Practice removing fossils from blocks of rocks and touch a creature that’s been around LONGER than a dinosaur, horseshoe crabs!
