Sept. 19, the exhibit Dragons Unearthed will open in Dinosphere’s Mann Properties Gallery of Dinosaur Imagery in the Children’s Museum. It will feature the John Lazendorf Collection of paleo art; the 66-million-year-old, first-of-its-kind, dragon-like dinosaur Dracorex hogwartsia, named in honor of the Harry Potter series of books, as well as other dinosaur specimens; interactive stations where families can fashion their own dragons from fossil evidence; and Asian artifacts from the museum’s Cultural World collection that feature dragon imagery. The exhibit explores the mythology behind dragons using true dinosaur facts.
To celebrate the exhibit’s opening, LEGO® Master Builders will create a 10-foot-tall dragon made entirely out of LEGO® bricks. Museum visitors are invited to work alongside the master builders Sept. 19-21.
