Description

Bring your little ones to learn about how dinosaurs raised their little ones!

"Tiny Titans: Dinosaur Eggs and Babies," a remarkable hands-on exhibit in the Virginia Living Museum's Changing Exhibits Gallery, offers an astounding array of authentic dinosaur eggs and nests collected from all over the globe – including those of each of the major plant and meat-eating dinosaur groups.

Kids can dig for eggs, dress up like a parent dinosaur to brood their nest, and feel the texture of dinosaur eggs. Cute babies and fun dino facts will keep everyone entertained on your next trip to the museum!

A central feature of the exhibit is a presentation about the discovery of Baby Louie, the nearly complete skeleton of a dinosaur embryo with its bones aligned in the proper position.  Charlie Magovern made this exceptional and rare discovery in 1993 when he was carefully cleaning a large block of eggs from China.

This exhibit also features the companion program A Family of Titans. What makes a family? Some dinosaurs lived in family groups, and others lived by themselves. Learn about different dinosaur families and meet some live animal ambassadors that are a part of the Virginia Living Museum family every Saturday at noon, 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.

Babies grow fast, so make sure you catch them while they are here from January 18 to May 3! Included in museum admission. Exhibit sponsored by TowneBank. And in summer 2020, the museum will go from tiny to big! Our "Jurassic Giants" exhibit will display roaring, stomping animatronic dinosaurs both indoors and outdoors. Including Gigantosaurus, the biggest animatronic dino the VLM has ever featured. Coming May 23-Sept. 7.
