Dino Day is coming to Jefferson County Museum of Art & History

Posted

Whether it’s the fascinating fossils, formation of modern-day continents, or the big-boned beasts that once roamed this planet, there’s something captivating about learning about Earth’s primitive history.

The Jefferson County Historical Society will be bringing that history to Port Townsend through Dino Day.

Dig In!, a traveling program of the Burke Museum, gives kids the chance to try their hand at paleontology by excavating fossils from dig pits and exploring fossil exhibits, all while learning more about rocks and minerals, continental drift, and best of all, dinosaurs.

The BurkeMobile will bring Dig In! to the Jefferson Museum of Art & History at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 19. The museum is at 540 Water St., Port Townsend.

Dino Day will wrap up with a special, one-night-only screening of the 1988 classic “The Land Before Time.” The movie, with limited seating for 40, will be shown at the Port Townsend Film Festival Balcony Theater.

This beloved film follows an orphaned brontosaurus who teams up with other dino friends to find the Great Valley and reunite with their families.

The Dig In! program is free to attend.

The movie screening will cost $5 per adult and $2 per child; tickets can be bought in advance at ptfilmfest.com.

Popcorn and beverages will be available for purchase at the theater, and dinosaur costumes are encouraged.
