After careful consideration ...

After careful consideration, the museum has decided to postpone Dino Day until Saturday, January 30 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. due to a major winter storm predicted to impact the region. We are pleased to announce that all of the great dinosaur displays, fossils, and live animals that were originally scheduled for Dino Day will still be offered on the 30th, as well as a variety of activities and behind-the-scenes tours of the museum's research areas. We greatly appreciate all of our vendors' willingness to adjust their schedules in order for us to offer the full-blown Dino Day on January 30. We also apologize for any inconvenience this causes to our visitors. We know many people were looking forward to attending Dino Day and we hope you will be able to join us on the 30th. It's going to be a blast! #VMNHDinoDay
