Attention Dinosaur Lovers - Learn How To Build a Triceratops at Gray Fossil Museum
Come see ETSU and GSB Natural History Museum staff members and volunteers conquer this ultimate jigsaw puzzle by working together in the Gray Fossil Site exhibit hall to assemble every individual bone into a mounted display of the full Triceratops skeleton, carving realistic Cretaceous plants, and painting a background habitat scene. As visitors watch this work in progress take shape, they will not only learn about this magnificent extinct creature, but also understand the team effort it takes to build an exhibit.
Also featured in Niswonger Exhibit Hall is the unique “Dinosaur Art of Mark Musy.” This exhibition is a representation of a paleo-artist’s journey from idea to final creation featuring Musy’s hand-sculpted dinosaur models and realistic drawings and images of T-Rex, Triceratops and other well-known dinosaurs.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, the museum is offering a 2-for-1 deal with this exhibit for the first time ever! Visitors that purchase admission to see the “Building Triceratops” exhibit between January 15 through March 15, 2011 will receive a free voucher to come see the completed exhibit any time between April 1 and May 15, 2011.
All this in Northeast Tennessee! Don't miss this great opportunity!!
