Head to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences to catch the wild new exhibit Dinosaurs in Motion, where visitors can engage with, and learn from, 14 life-sized metal dinosaur sculptures inspired by actual fossils. The exhibit will run through September 8th. The Dinosaurs in Motion sculptures are interactive; visitors can manipulate each dinosaur via lever-and-pulley systems or remote controls. Visitors are also taken along an apprentice’s path that ends at Innovation Stations, where they can test their creativity and newfound technological inspiration with hands-on activities.
Beginning May 18, Dinosaurs in Motion is open Monday-Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sunday 12 to 5pm (last entry at 4pm). The exhibition is also open late (last entry at 7pm) on First Fridays and every Thursday, offering discounted adult admission. Tickets will be available to purchase starting May 10, 2013 from the Museum Box Office (919.707.9950) and online at tickets.naturalsciences.org. Prices: Free for Members; $10 for Adults; $6 for Children (3-12); $8 for Students, Seniors (65+) and Military.
