“Discover the Dinosaurs” is coming to the Visalia Convention Center, 303 E. Acequia Ave., on July 12-13. This hands-on exhibit showcases museum-quality pieces along with several moving animatronic dinosaurs, all in a fun and educational environment. Kids and families are encouraged to get up close and touch some of the dinosaurs on display, an opportunity that isn’t usually available in museum exhibits and other dinosaur events.
In addition to the exhibit, other activities included in admission price are the Dino Dig, Dino Den play area, Dino coloring area, scavenger hunt, and Dino Theater. Several other attractions including gem and fossil panning, face painting, dinosaur inflatables, mini golf, and Dino rides are available for additional charge.
Discover the Dinosaurs engages the imaginations of kids to learn, gives them the hands-on opportunity to touch a dinosaur, actually ride on the back of a T-rex, and experience other fun activities and attractions that make spending the day with dinosaurs fun for all ages.
The exhibit runs 9am to 9pm on Saturday, and 10am to 7pm on Sunday. Admission is $18 for teens and adults, $16 for seniors (65+), $16 or $22 for children (2-11), and children under 2 are admitted free. Individual ride tickets may be purchased for $5 or $6.
