The Louisiana Museum of Art and Science will host “dino-mite” Dino Day

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – The Louisiana Art and Science Museum (LASM) will hold its Dino Day on Saturday, June 25 after a three-year hiatus.

Dino Day will feature hands-on activities and give attendees the chance to see an authentic Triceratops skull discovered in 2011 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The 65 million year old fossil is on loan from Raising Cane’s and the Todd Family Graves. A screening of the Louisiana Public Broadcasting (LPB) show Dinosaur Train will air at the Adalié Brent Auditorium and dinosaur-themed shows will air at the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium until 5 p.m.

“We are thrilled to have a real paleontologist who represents LSU’s Department of Geology and Geophysics and the LSU Museum of Natural Sciences also join us in celebrating the ‘Colossal Fossil’ Jason,” said the director of the LASM Education, Nita Mitchell.

General admission to the museum includes all shows at the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium and the Adalié Brent Auditorium. Admission is free for LASM members.

“Dino Day has been one of our favorite community programs since we first introduced it in 2016, and we’re extremely excited to bring back this special day of discovery and exploration,” Mitchell said.
