IMG_1193There’s a sign beside each dinosaur with the name, a short description and a FUN FACT. The teacher in me loved this detail.

IMG_1164There are two tables full of toy dinosaurs. Younger children will spend most of their time in this spot.

IMG_1183When we were there, kids were running around everywhere dressed as their favorite dinosaur.

IMG_1189I made JP walk around and read the signs on the walls. It was a perfect history AND science lesson!

IMG_1184A BIG shout out to our friends at The Upcountry History Museum for inviting us to experience Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice! (This exhibit runs through January 27th)

When you go, make sure to check out the Vietnam exhibit on the 2nd floor. My dad served in Vietnam, so it was really neat for our boys to read about the war and look at real photographs.

Have you heard of “Neighborhood Nights?” It’s the perfect time to visit (for FREE), if you live in the Upstate.

The Upcountry History Museum – Furman University is thrilled to invite our community to a series of programs designed to make our museum open to everyone! The Museum will be open on the first Thursday evening of each month throughout 2018. Neighborhood Nights will run from 5:30-8:30 pm during which time admission to the museum and all museum exhibitions will be FREE. (per their website)
