Bone Up On Your Prehistory!
Dinosaurs are coming to Downtown! On April 5th, Fossil Giants: Dinosaurs & Mammals will make its Louisiana debut at the Lafayette Science Museum with towering fossils, dazzling minerals, and prehistoric bones. Unfolding over the course of three years, the exhibit will show how dinosaurs, and eventually mammals, evolved over the course of millions of years. As you and your family wander among dynamically posed fossil casts, you’ll get up close and personal with the prehistoric beasts that roamed the Earth long before we did.
The exhibit also kicks off our partnership with the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s Geosciences Department. In addition to providing academic support to the dinosaur exhibit, the university’s extensive collection of fossils, rocks, and minerals will be on display for members and visitors. Unearth these beautiful specimens, learn about their chemical makeup, and explore how minerals are used.

You know about dinosaurs from the movies — now’s your chance to come to the Lafayette Science Museum and sink your teeth into some real history. Start planning your visit now!
