Bring your dinorama to the County Museum on Oct. 4
Special programs for children will be featured at the San Bernardino County Museum on Dinorama Day on Saturday, Oct. 4 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Dinorama Day is presented in conjunction with the museum’s latest special exhibit, “Fossils Underfoot,” in the Hall of Geological Wonders. Activities are included with paid museum admission.
Kids of all ages are invited to bring in their own creation: a shoebox diorama featuring dinosaurs that the museum is calling a dinorama. The rules for creating a dinorama are simple: it must be created inside a shoebox; it should be entirely self-contained with no moving parts; and it should not contain organic materials (for example, no real twigs, leaves, or bark). Each dinorama should be marked with the artist’s name and grade in school: preschool; K-4; 5-8; 9 and above.
Dinoramas should be delivered to the museum on Friday, Oct. 3 between 3 and 4:30 p.m. They will be put on display for Saturday’s Dinorama Day and remain on exhibit until the end of Dinosaur Discovery Day on Saturday, Oct. 18.
Dinorama Day at the museum will also feature craft activities, dinosaur story time, and at 2 p.m. a special dinosaur “kid talk” with Curator of Paleontology Eric Scott.
