Free Dino Day at the Chimczuk Museum!

Visit the Chimczuk Museum free on Saturday, January 14, 2023 for a fun filled day of family-friendly activities.

As the travelling exhibition, Dinosaur Discoveries: Ancient Fossils, New Ideas comes to a close, Museum Windsor wants to have one final celebration in the form of an activity filled free day at the Chimczuk Museum. The list of activities includes:

  • Presentation by dinosaur expert Dr. Denis Tetreault entitled Tyrannosaurus vs. Triceratops: Life and Death at the End of the Age of the Dinosaurs.
  • A look at the lives of the two most iconic creatures to have ever walked the Earth. Dr. Tetreault will examine what we know about them and review the evidence that scientists use to uncover their 65 million year old secrets.
  • Presentations will be at 1pm and 4pm (seating is first come, first seated – no reservations).
  • “Ask a Paleontologist” in the Dinosaur Discoveries exhibit ­– between presentations, Dr. Tetreault will be roaming the dinosaur exhibit ready to answer your most pressing dinosaur questions.
  • Fossil discovery station. Ever wonder what it would feel like to touch fossilized dinosaur poop? Stop by our discovery station to touch and feel original and replica fossils.
  • Self guided dinosaur crafts and dino themed scavenger hunt.
  • Museum Gift Shop sale featuring discounts on dinosaur and select holiday items.
  • Visitors are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for the Windsor Youth Centre.

Dinosaur Discoveries: Ancient Fossils, New Ideas is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York, in collaboration with the California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco; The Field Museum, Chicago; the Houston Museum of Natural Science; and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Raleigh.
