I’m a nerd for Dinos, so I love taking my little guy to exhibits like this one at the Monmouth Museum.
The Dinosaurs and Fossils exhibit, along with the Innovation areas, in the Becker Wing of the Museum.
The little ones can explore the toddler T-Rex skeleton replica, dig for fossils in the Dino Dig areas, a Paleo Lab to explore the different textures and components of different fossils and minerals, and so much more.
There is also a cute little art studio nearby so the little ones can focus and work on different crafts they have available with a video to guide you and your child during the activity.
This area is designed specifically for childhood education with a variety of elements that stimulate their curiosity, enhance understanding, and draw visitors young and old to experiment, imagine, explore and discover.
The Becker Wing is open Saturday-Sunday 10am-4pm.
