FOSSIL FEST

Something Everyone Can Dig

MARCH 27 & 28

Travel back millions of years at Fossil Fest as the Museum of Science & History (MoSH) and its properties come together for a two-day, paleontology party. Dig through matrix (earth from Coon Creek dig site) and discover fossils and shells millions of years old. Take a journey through the Mesozoic era including the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous Periods as you follow a timeline of dinosaur history. LEARN MORE

Museum Gallery Activities

Join us every Saturday and Sunday at 1:30pm for hands-on Make-and-Take fun!  Learn about what a trace fossil is, how paleontologists use them to study ancient animals, and make your own! 

To take a closer look at both the animals and machines in the Dinosaurs in Motion exhibit, make sure to stop by our demonstration carts.  Our team is looking at what we can learn about dinosaur diets by looking at their skulls and teeth, as well as experimenting with simple machines to learn how these amazing tools make our lives easier.

Backyard Dinosaurs

Hear stories about huge flying reptiles and dinosaurs that once lived in our backyard. Tune into our Tributaries podcast for Backyard Dinosaurs and visit Curator's Choice to learn more about the Longueuil Mastodon (mastodon jaw fragment pictured).
