DinoSnores Sleepovers

A slumber party 65-million years in the making!

Book a DinoSnores Sleepover and your class can sleep beneath giants — prehistoric giants! — inside the new feature exhibition Dinosaurs Unearthed: Down to the Bone beginning June 1 through November 4, 2018! 

You class will become palaeontologists:

  • Explore Dinosaurs Unearthed: Down to the Bone like never before on an after-dark tour.  Your flashlight will be your only guide as you step in the shadow of these massive creatures. Be careful – don’t run into T. rex!
  • Extract bones using picks and brushes, just like palaeontologists do in the field! You'll learn about the delicate work of uncovering fossilized remains.
  • Unwind the clock and discover the massive (and crazy) scale of dinosaur times. Did you know that less time separates iPads and Tyrannosaurus then the time between Tyrannosaurus and Stegosaurus?  

Your class will also enjoy: 

  • Travelling to far-away lands, discovering exotic wildlife or exploring the far reaches of the galaxy when you watch an IMAX film on Alberta's largest screen!
  • Embarking on your own "after-dark" expeditions and experience each exhibit gallery like never before. 
  • Participating in explosive science demonstrations and exciting hands-on science activities
