Dinosaur Fun at the Long Island Children’s Museum

We had the best time at the Long Island Children’s Museum in Garden City. It is always fun there but, this weekend we had a DINO-mite time checking out their new Dinosaurs Land of Fire & Ice exhibit. Have you been, yet?

The exhibit transports families back to the Cretaceous Period (145 – 65 million years ago), the time when dinosaurs last lived on Earth. Through interactive play kids and adults will have fun learning in this temporary exhibit that will be part of the Long Island Children’s Museum till May. Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice™ was created by Minnesota Children’s Museum and nationally sponsored by The David B. Jones Foundation.

But did you know there’s a “natural history” museum right here on Long Island?

Okay, it doesn’t have all the things you’ll find in Manhattan. But it does have an amazing ocean exhibit. Even better that the Museum of Natural History, which has a fake whale hanging from the ceiling, this place has a real 32-foot whale shark! It’s the world’s largest taxidermied (stuffed and preserved) fish! And it was caught nearby, off Fire Island, in 1935.
