Yale Peabody Museum Events - 2012
$10 per person
Want to meet a baby dryosaur? Or see eye-to-eye with a dwarf allosaur? This is a puppet show like none other! Thanks to the International Festival of Arts & Ideas, the Australian performing troupe ERTH is bringing their highly interactive Dinosaur Petting Zoo to New Haven. The dinosaurs will be at the Festival on the New Haven Green over the weekend, and then at the Yale Peabody Museum on Monday, June 18, for a unique experience among our own dinosaurs. You'll take a journey through prehistoric Australia and meet remarkable dinosaurs and other animals that inhabited that landscape millions of years ago. Children will even be able to help feed, water and care for these prehistoric creatures! How will the Australian dinosaurs get along with Apatosaurus, Stegosaurus and all of the other Peabody dinosaurs? Only time will tell...
Don't wait too long - we expect tickets to sell out fast!
ERTH is presented in New Haven in collaboration with the International Festival of Arts & Ideas
The mission of the Peabody Museum is to serve Yale University by advancing our understanding of earth’s history through geological, biological, and anthropological research, and by communicating the results of this research to the widest possible audience through publication, exhibition, and educational programs.
Fundamental to this mission is stewardship of the Museum’s rich collections, which provide a remarkable record of the history of the earth, its life, and its cultures. Conservation, augmentation and use of these collections become increasingly urgent as modern threats to the diversity of life and culture continue to intensify.
