Dinosaur World and local science center partner for new exhibit

Dinosaur World and the Barren River Imaginative Museum of Science (BRIMS) are partnering to bring local children a new interactive exhibit at the BRIMS location.

Beginning Friday, March 23rd, children can learn about paleontology by sifting through the sands of a dig site in search of authentic fossils to take home. Children can find up to nine different fossils in the dig site, and are able to take their favorite fossil home. While doing this, they will not only learn about fossils, but also a bit about the difference between paleontology vs.
archeology. “If you have fun while learning, that’s when it sticks,” said Dinosaur World Marketing Director Nicole Randall. “And having fun while learning is what both Dinosaur World and BRIMS are all about.” Children will also see a replica juvenile Chasmasaur and parts of a replica Tyrannasarus Rex.

The new dinosaur paleontology exhibit joins BRIMS areas of astronomy, chemistry, biology, electronics and more in an effort to engage the community in scientific exploration. Dinosaur World is proud to partner in this effort to help children grown in science.

BRIMS is located at the Greenwood Mall in Bowling Green. The hours are Friday and Saturday from 10am to 6pm. Dinosaur World is home to over 150 life size dinosaurs located on I-65, Exit 53 in Cave City. Field trip reservations may be made at both locations.
