Discover Triceratops and more at the Burke Museum’s annual Dino Day! This popular family event features dozens of dinosaur-era fossils from the Burke’s collection, along with hands-on learning activities for all ages.
See real Triceratops fossils, including horns and bones discovered by Burke Museum paleontologists last summer in Wyoming. Witness the bones emerge from the rock as a Burke scientist carefully cleans the fossil right in front of you!
Dino Day is full of other activities to keep families engaged and entertained. Crack open a rock with Stonerose Interpretive Center and take home whatever you find inside. Draw a dino with illustrator Mark Orsen. Dress up like a dinosaur! Join Burke educators, curators, and collection managers for fun activities that will teach you all about prehistoric vertebrates, invertebrates, plants, and minerals.
Dinosaur Day is presented in partnership with the Northwest Paleontology Association and the Stonerose Interpretive Center. This event is included with admission to the museum.
