Jurassic World premiered last weekend; a reboot of the famous Jurassic Park movies from the 90’s starring Chris Pratt. Dinosaurs have held our fascination and attention for a long time, for good reason. They are incredible. Need more dinosaurs in your life? Here are some of our suggestions:

  • Visit the NC Museum of Natural Science. The have real dinosaur skeletons (Acrocanthosaurus atokensis and Thescelosaurus) for you to look at and learn about. The best part? It’s free!
  • Have kids that like dinosaurs? Take them to Dinosaur Trail at the Museum of Life and Science. Get your hands dirty digging for fossils and have a picture taken with a parasaurolophus.
  • Interested in collecting your own fossils? Join the NC Fossil Club. They have meetings every two months, educate people about geological history, and take trips to find and collect fossils.
  • Don’t have time for any of the above? Just sit back and watch videos about dinosaurs for free through Films on Demand. Oh, look. Here’s one right now!
