The Edventure Children's Museum Dino’s Big Dig has kids who love dinosaurs excited. The exhibit is the first time Columbia's Edventure has given children the chance to be around life size dinosaurs.
Edventure made a trade with the Omaha Children’s Museum – giving them the popular SnowVille exhibit in exchange for a more prehistoric experience.
“We’ve had a lot of excitement, the kids have seemed really eager to come in here and play, we had the curtains closed and they were peaking behind the curtains,” said Kristie Barnes, marketing director of Edventure.
The exhibit features everything from a Stegosaurus to the Velociraptor. It also features a treasure creek giving little explorers the opportunity to sift and find special gems and fossils. Kids to read books, play with an assortment of puzzles and play dress up.
Children can visit Edventure and play paleontologist until April 24 when the dinosaurs go back into extinction.
