Experience your own night at the Royal B.C. Museum this weekend

The Royal B.C. Museum has planned a weekend packed with fun for dinosaur fans. On Friday, May 25 travel back in time on an overnight adventure that you’ll never forget. After everyone has gone home and the museum has closed its doors for the night, families are invited to enter the Dinosaurs exhibition for an exciting night of discovery during A Night at the Museum Family Sleepover.

A pancake breakfast, late-night flashlight tours, games, stories, activities and early morning dino-yoga are all included in the adventure. The sleepover runs from 6:30 p.m. to 9 a.m. The cost is $75 per person. There is a 10 per cent discount for members. Age 6 and up.

On Sunday, May 27, join preeminent dinosaur scientist, Philip Currie, as he highlights recent advances in our understanding of how dinosaurs looked, moved, behaved and died. Find out how scientists are developing new technologies and ideas that continue to transform paleontology.

Currie is a Canada Research Chair at the University of Alberta in the Department of Biological Sciences, Adjunct Professor at the University of Calgary, and former Curator of Dinosaurs at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology. The presentation runs from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the IMAX Theatre at the museum. The cost is $15. There is a 10 per cent discount for members. Age 12 and up.
