Dinosaurs may be extinct from the face of the planet, but they are coming back to life in Oklahoma
“The public image of dinosaurs is tainted by extinction. It’s hard to accept dinosaurs as a success when they are all dead. But the fact of ultimate extinction should not make us overlook the absolutely unsurpassed role dinosaurs played in the history of life.”
ROBERT T. BAKKER, The Dinosaur Heresies
OKLAHOMA – Oklahoma Science Museum gives Oklahomans’ the chance to see the role dinosaurs played in history.
It’s true! Dinosaurs are invading the state.
“Red Dirt Dinos” features three animatronic dinosaurs that lived in Oklahoma millions of years ago, including the official state dinosaur who was named after a county in Oklahoma.
The skull of a Tenontosaurus, Deinonychus and many more “Dinos” will be shown at the exhibit.
“People can learn a little bit about Oklahoma’s history, a little bit of the fossils of our past, and about what it takes to be a scientist,” said Sherry Marshall, Director of the Oklahoma Museum Network.
“Red Dirt Dinos: An Oklahoma Dinosaur Adventure” is on display at Science Museum Oklahoma through March 15.
The museum is located at 2100 N.E. 52nd Street, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73111
