Auditorium Show:  Meet the Dinos
5:30 and 7 p.m.

Get close to the modern dinosaur relatives of today! Some are feathered, some are scaly, and all claim lineage to the ancient reptiles that used to walk the earth. Meet the 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.

Dinosaurs Around the World Are Coming…Here!

From the towering, roaring dinosaurs on the Parkway to the giant fossils on display in Dinosaur Hall, this edition of Dinos After Dark is a celebration of all things prehistoric! Talk to fossil preparators in the fossil prep lab, chat with academy paleontology experts and touch real fossils at a special education station, and definitely don’t miss your chance to be the first to take a selfie with our newest dino residents outside on the Parkway BEFORE Dinosaurs Around the World opens on June 30.

Dinos Drafts Beer Garden

12th St. Catering and the Academy of Natural Sciences are excited to offer Dino Drafts: The Academy Beer Garden inside the museum’s famous Dinosaur Hall during Dinos After Dark. Come warm up inside, play board games, purchase a drink, and enjoy mouthwatering bites (think tacos!) at the foot of a 40-foot-long T. rex and its prehistoric friends.  Partial proceeds from Dino Drafts: The Academy Beer Garden benefit the Academy of Natural Sciences.
