Dinosaurs & Dragons

Children

Did you know that dragons, the Cyclops, griffins, and many other mythological creatures were all inspired by real fossils?

In this program from Wausau's own Colossal Fossils, "Dinosaurs and Dragons" dives into the mythology of ancient Greece, Persia, China, Europe, and North America to explain how fossils may have spurred the imaginations of ancient people. This hands-on presentation includes bones from many famous dinosaurs, and bones from animals that aren't extinct, to bring these mythological stories to life.

Free and open to the public with no registration.
