Tiny Titans at The Academy of Natural Sciences

The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University has a new special exhibit now open through January 15, 2018, and we think it's the perfect mix of fascinating facts and interactive displays during the colder months of Philadelphia.  We were recently invited out to take a look, and we definitely plan on going back again!  The new exhibit, Tiny Titans: Dinosaur Eggs and Babies, explores the beginning and early stages in a dinosaur's life with a close examination of dino eggs, embryos, and babies with something new to learn in every corner.

Tiny Titans includes real dinosaur eggs and nests from all over the world  giving visitors a better understanding at how shape and size differed among the various species.  Each display is accompanied by loads of amazing information, and we found ourselves picking up quite a lot of new dinosaur facts.  The entire exhibit is interactive making it a hands on learning experience for all ages.

Daily Vacationer Jr says: Tiny Titans is a fantastic exhibit to bring kids! Nearly every part was labeled "Please Touch" with curious hands allowed to feel real dinosaur eggs, nests, and fossils (we were even allowed to touch the baby dinosaurs!).  There are multiple spots to play paleontologist and dig for bones, plus a fun area with toy dinos to move around.  Our little vacationers had the most fun in the dress up area, getting themselves rigged up into dinosaur costumes and protecting their pretend eggs.  With a low key, relaxing set up and hands on fun in every section, Tiny Titans is the place to bring the family on those cold or rainy days.

Tiny Titans is $5 for nonmembers in addition to general admission;
$3 for individual and family members.
Family plus members and above see it free.
