Dinosaur Train: The Traveling Exhibit is open at The Children’s Museum! In this exhibit inspired by the hit PBS KIDS TV series, you can practice scientific principles while exploring the world of the Pteranodon family: Mr. and Mrs. Pteranodon, Tiny, Shiny, Don, and Buddy the Tyrannosaurus rex. Explore, dig, and make your own discoveries.
