Texas loves dinosaurs. The fascination with these historic creatures never seems to be out of style and having a festival to celebrate them only seems right. The Perot Museum Of Nature and Science is hosting a Dino Fest from August 31 to September 1 and you'll even get to meet a dino. There will be so much to do that you might just feel like a paleontologist by the end of the day.
The event will feature micro tours of their amazing exhibits. Visitors will also have a chance to test their knowledge with dinosaur trivia. The museum's resident paleontologists will be in attendance to answer any questions you may have on these creatures and will also be giving talks where they will discuss everything there is to know about these prehistoric beasts.
Guests of Dino Fest will have a chance to dig for fossils in the dinosaur pit. For those 21 and older, there will be a beer garden you can enjoy while exploring everything the museum has to offer. You'll need to keep an eye out as there will be life-sized dinos roaming the halls of the museum — but don't worry, they'll be kind and ready for a selfie.
The event will come with general and free admissions, which means that if you're a member of the museum, entry is free, and if you're not a member, tickets will be around $20. Dino Fest starts at 10 a.m. and runs until 4 p.m.
The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is located at 2201 N. Field St., Dallas, TX 75201. For tickets and more information, you can visit the website here.
