Pack up your fossils and hit the road!

Bring your fossil discoveries to get expert opinions about their ages and identities from our team of scientists.

In addition to the Museum's fossil collection, there will be displays from collectors and exhibitors, hands-on activities, "fossil digs", and a scavenger hunt.

So, go through your "rock boxes" and challenge our staff with your prehistoric oddities!

This event is included with Museum admission or MMNS Foundation Membership.
