Dinosaurs invade the mall
Are you ready to embark on a prehistoric adventure? If your child has a hankering for the dino-rific, there’s an awesome chance for you to get up close and one on one with a never before seen exhibit.
Dinosaur George is taking the museum on the road with his Museum in the Classroom at North Star Mall. Thanks to North Star and KLRN, you can visit the expansive exhibit during mall hours on August 23- 26 and see the first public showing of several rare dinosaur artifacts. Featuring a Pteranondon, that’s available to view for the first time from all 360-degrees, the exhibit also includes some never before seen specimens like:
- The Gorgosaurus: a 23-foot long giant meat eating dinosaur that terrorized North America 75 million years ago
- Stan: the skull of one of the largest Tyrannosaurus Rexes ever discovered
- Deinosuchus: the skull of a giant Texas crocodile that grew longer than a city bus
- Jaws and Claws: the largest traveling exhibit of predatory dinosaur skulls in North America
- Creatures of Prehistoric Texas
- Dinosaur Defenses
- Titans of the Dinosaur Kingdom
Dinosaur George’s Museum in the Classroom is free and open to the public for a limited time at North Star Mall. You can experience history at your own pace through the self-guided exhibit, and there will be experts on hand at each display to answer questions and help enhance your journey back in time.
