Colburn Earth Science Museum will host a hard-hat tour and unveil its first new exhibit for the Asheville Museum of Science. In conjunction with the North Carolina Science Festival, taking place through April 24, 2016, the Colburn will present their newly purchased dinosaur – a Terataphoneus curriei. Similar to a sub-adult Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Terataphoneus curriei was discovered by paleontologist John Hankla, who will be at the museum for the unveiling.
The event will be held at the Colburn Earth Science Museum in Pack Place from 4 pm to 6 pm on April 20th. The program will include a dinosaur presentation at the Colburn and will conclude with a walking tour to the future Asheville Museum of Science (AMOS) and the Collider in the Wells Fargo Building, adjacent to Pritchard Park downtown.
