September 29-30: Dinosaurs once dominated the Earth, and this weekend they are taking over Los Angeles for the 3rd annual Dino Fest at the Natural History Museum! Join the musseum for a two-day festival celebrating dinosaurs, their prehistoric past, and the science that brings their world back to life. Meet world-renowned paleontologists from the Museum’s Dinosaur Institute and beyond as they discuss historic and ongoing fossil discoveries from around the world. Visit exhibitors, catch a glimpse of rare specimens from the Museum’s collections, dig into hands-on activities, explore the world renowned Dino Hall with the world’s only Tyrannosaurus rex growth series, and so much more! This year you can cool off with dinosaurs who lived in polar environments, like Cryolophosaurus. And help to celebrate the Dinosaur Puppets’ 10th birthday! It’s bound to be a bash!
