The folks at the Cincinnati Museum Center invited me in to check out their RAWRsome new Dinosaur exhibit! The exhibit is in place through January 5 - so it seems you have plans to make!
If you haven't been - it's a 5 story high theater that surrounds you. It's amazing! There's a little dizzy factor to get over - but nothing too distracting and so worth it.
Ticket prices for the OMNIMAX theater range from $4.50-$7.50 and can be purchased separate from any museum entrance fees.
Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants from Gondwana exhibit. There was a great mix of the story of dinosaurs, real fossils, dinosaurs and interactive exhibits.
I remember when I was a kid - I was OBSESSED with dinosaurs! I had models that I put together, posters, toys, puzzles, books and everything else a poor kid could get her hands on. Stegasaurus was my favorite - yes - this nerd had a favorite dinosaur.
And it was fun to see how interactive the exhibits were - they were all positioned for kids to get as much out of them as adults. Seeing a young girl fascinated by these amazing creatures as much as I was definitely took me back!
The Giants of Gondwana exhibit is also able to be visited separate from the rest of the museums and tickets range from $7-$15.
Also before you go - if you have an iPhone - be sure to download the Dino app - you'll be able to take 3D pics with the dinosaurs walking around you! But download BEFORE you go - reception in there is spotty and slow!
Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall was at the Museum Center as well. It was free with a donation box on entry.
Whether or not you have a young one OBSESSED with dinosaurs as much as I was - it's really a great exhibit and the OMNIMAX is always entertaining and informational. Thanks again to the Cincinnati Museum Center for the admission.
