Guided Tours of Dinosaur Hall

Meet under the T. rex for ultra-cool dinosaur tours. Bring your most pressing dino questions!

Hear Again Radio Project - Lights Out—Sub Basement!
6 and 7 p.m.

This slightly spooky, old-school live radio performance takes us back in time and down to the “sub-basement” of the museum to search for long lost worlds. We might even discover dinosaurs down there!

Hear Again Radio Project is a collective of theater artists who fully explore the medium of radio drama to entertain and enhance the human experience.

Meet the Animals

Meet the furry, feathered and scaly residents of the museum’s Live Animal Center and explore their behaviors, adaptations and ecosystems. The museum's Live Animal Center supports over 100 individual animal ambassadors and several colonies of invertebrates.

Drawing Dinosaurs, Cretaceous Crafts and Coloring Book Signing!

Join paleo-illustrator Jason Poole and see dinosaurs come to life during these on-going and interactive demonstrations. Try your hand at drawing a dinosaur of your own, and make your own paleo-perfect crafts to take home.

After you’ve “drawn to your art’s content,” purchase a copy of Dynasty of Dinosaurs and get it signed by the authors, Jason Schein from Bighorn Basin Paleontological Institute and the Academy’s own Jason Poole.

About the Academy’s Outdoor Beer Garden: Dino Drafts

Join 12th St. Catering and the Academy of Natural Sciences for Dino Drafts: The Academy Beer Garden outside on the Parkway during Dinos After Dark. Come soak in the evening sun, play board games, and purchase beer or sample some mouthwatering bites (think tacos!) at the foot of a giant animatronic orchid mantis. The entire museum will be open with pay-what-you-wish admission (suggested donation is $10 per person). Families are welcome—and if you like, you can stop by for a drink and carry it with you as your group enjoys the museum. Partial proceeds from Dino Drafts: The Academy Beer Garden benefit the Academy of Natural Sciences.
