We admit that there are fantastic creatures other than dinosaurs that children are enamored of—unicorns, winged ponies, Smurfs—but besides being an endless object of wonder, dinosaurs have the additional educational value of having actually existed. In addition to being thrilled by and/or scared of these prehistoric monsters, kids can learn from them, too.
That’s the idea behind Dinosaurs! the exhibit opening Saturday at miSci in Schenectady. These robot monsters stomp and roar, and include a 32-foot-long Apatosaurus, a 12-foot-tall cousin of T-Rex, and a 12-foot-long Albertosaurus. Accompanying exhibits include a nest of dinosaur eggs and other assorted delights.
Dinosaurs! opens Saturday (June 29) and will remain on view (and roaring) through Sept. 29 at miSci (15 Nott Terrace Heights, Schenectady). For more info, call the museum at 382-7890.
