Hunt for dinosaur eggs.
Thrill to a dino-themed storytime.
See our complete dinosaur skeleton—now celebrating its first anniversary in the museum.
Take a tour of the Orton Geological Museum.
It all happens when you join us for National Fossil Day! It’s free and open to the public.
The fun kicks off at 6 p.m. with games, activities, and tours of the museum throughout the night. You’ll also be among the first to see the new gift shop items. Our National Fossil Day event also serves as a celebration of the next chapter for the museum, with a series of new initiatives and programs slated to launch in the upcoming year under our new director, Dr. Loren Babcock
