Dinosaurs Unearthed :: Sloan Museum at Courtland Center

Mid-Michigan Moms Blog has a wonderful partnership with Sloan Museum, a local gem that we are honored to work with and showcase on our platform! All opinion expressed in this post are our own, based on our first-hand experience at Dinosaurs Unearthed at Courtland Center.

The dinosaurs have arrived! Dinosaurs Unearthed that is, at Courtland Center. One of Sloan Museum’s newest exhibit boasts dinos so big, that they had to take up residence outside of the museum!

The Dinosaurs ::

These guys {and gals!} are HUGE and so incredibly life-like! They roar and move as you walk past. Each member of the dino crew is scientifically accurate, down to the feathers on T. rex. How cool is that?! Over 15 animatronic dinosaurs are featured throughout the exhibit. Giant skeletons, fossil casts of skulls, claws, and horns are on display, too. Your little ones will delight in digging for fossils, and seeing real specimens of Mosasaur and Spinosaurus teeth. You can even check out – wait for it – DINOSAUR POOP! Yes, even coprolite is on display at this dynamic exhibit.

The New Wizner’s Whizbang Emporium + The Buick Gallery ::

An added bonus? The new Wizner’s Whizbang Emporium, located in the rear of the exhibit, behind the dinosaurs. Featuring a play structure, a two-story play house, a market for little ones to shop in, puzzles and more. Much like its twin within Sloan Museum, the new Wizner’s offers a fun and interactive experience for children of all ages.
