Event Description

Come get your fossil on! Paleopalooza is back and bigger than ever. Visit the Academy in February for an exciting weekend packed with activities, shows, and more—all featuring your favorite animals—dinosaurs!

This year features performances you’ll dig, including a visit from Chad Peeling of Clyde Peeling’s Reptiland/Peeling Productions. Peeling will present “Life in Scales,” a high-energy animal show that answers the question, “Are dinosaurs really extinct?” Join Drexel University paleontologist Dr. Ken Lacovara as he shares how he and a team of researchers at Drexel are bringing the latest technological advancements in 3-D printing to the study of ancient life. Keep boogying as you enjoy the hip music from the Diggity Dudes, offered twice daily.

Throughout the weekend, take tours of Dinosaur Hall, play a game of Dino-opoly, get your face painted, peruse fossil tables, and make dinosaur crafts to take home. Hunt for and keep real fossils. You can even meet our paleontologists and bring that question you’ve always wondered about but were afraid to ask. After that, see if you can catch roving fossil juggler Randy Lyons as he strolls the museum teaching and tossing fossils. It’s a fossil-filled weekend you won’t want to miss!
