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.
Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice™, created by Minnesota Children’s Museum and nationally sponsored by The David B. Jones Foundation, opens on January 27, 2018.
This will be the first child-centered exhibit in the country dedicated to expanding the understanding on dinosaur habitat and range. The exhibit will run at Long Island Children’s Museum through May 13, 2018.
You probably know about the Museum of Natural History in New York City. Maybe you’ve been there.
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.
A great experience under the stars at the Planetarium for all ages.
As a child I remember loving the Vanderbilt Museum and Planetarium and I could not wait for the day to take my own children. I was so happy when I saw that they have different shows for all different ages. So even at a young age my daughters could enjoy the show.
