Kids Dig Dinosaurs at
Creative Discovery Museum

Kids really dig dinosaurs at Creative Discovery Museum in Chattanooga, Tennessee, just two blocks from the Tennessee Aquarium. Kids can discover the fun of a life-size dinosaur dig in the Field Scientist's Laboratory, one of the Museum's permanent core exhibits. After you see "T-Rex: Back to the Cretaceous" at the IMAX 3D Theater next door, come to the Museum and learn more about the king of the dinosaurs.

In the Museum's Field Scientist's Laboratory, children can dress up like dinosaurs, dig in a simulated field site and uncover dinosaur bones, walk beneath a life-size T .rex skeleton, hear what an extinct herbivore may have sounded like, study flip charts, identify bones, and see how real paleontologists work and study. This is hands-on fun even parents can enjoy.

The Museum will feature special field scientist and dinosaur related activities while "T-Rex: Back to the Cretaceous" is showing at the IMAX 3D Theater next door. There's always something new to do at the Creative Discovery Museum, so call (423) 756-2738 for activity dates and times, or check our web site at www.cdmfun.org. Fun is never extinct at this place!
