Still not sure what to do with the kids? With March Break literally right around the corner, THEMUSEUM has arranged a variety of events, activities, guests, and much more to keep you and your children covered. Below you’ll find 5 interactive, exciting, and inspiring things to do this March Break.
1. Maverick the Dinosaur, LIVE! | March 13, 14, 16 at 10:30am
Meet our pet dinosaur, a juvenile T-Rex named Maverick! Lead by our resident “Paleontologist”, this show will teach you all about our cool new…er…old friend! What he eats, how his body works (such as his sharp teeth and claws, as well as his tiny arms), how he moves and more! You will also learn how a T-Rex is similar, or different, compared to other dinosaurs.
2. Jungle Cats! Wildlife Safari | March 14 at 1:30pm
Come see an array of mammals from around the world! This show will be an exciting opportunity to see these amazing animals up close and to learn about their fascinating lives. Where do they live? How do they survive? What is their role in the ecosystem? What we can do to protect them from going extinct? Meet our wildlife experts and learn the answers to all these questions and more!
3. Carnival Day with Drew Ripley | March 16 at 1:30pm
