You have one last chance to visit with the dinosaurs before they slip back into extinction.
The S.C. State Museum has extended the “Dinosaurs: A Bite Out of Time” exhibit by one week because of its overwhelming popularity. Sunday is the exhibit’s final day.
The traveling exhibit, which has been at the State Museum since June, features enormous robotic dinosaurs, including the ferocious Tyrannosaurus rex, the massive Stegosaurus, the flying Pteranodon and the long-necked Apatosaurus. Visitors also will learn about non-dinosaur creatures that roamed the earth during the same era, such as the Mosasaurus, a fierce sea reptile.
The exhibit also includes hands-on activities such as a controllable duck-billed dinosaur, a fossil dig station and a dinosaur puppet theater.
The S.C. State Museum is open Sunday from 12-5 p.m. Admission to the museum plus the dinosaur exhibit is $11.95 for children ages 3-12, $12.95 for senior citizens and $13.95 for adults. Children ages 2 and younger are free.
