Dinosaurs Are Invading Downtown Tyler
Watch out downtown Tyler! Pre-historic dinosaurs have invaded part of downtown and have taken up residency at the Discovery Science Place, and it looks like they're planning to stay there through the summer.
"Predators," the new exhibit at the Discovery Science Place, opens this weekend and will remain throughout the summer thanks to the Museum of Discovery in Little Rock. The exhibit highlights some of the most dangerous animals that have lived on the land, sea and ruled the sky.
A life sized velociraptor is just one of the the highlights of the predators exhibit. Visitors can come face-to-face with a 15-foot great white shark in a steel diving cage as it tries to swallow you with all of its teeth. You'll be introduced to the lantern fish, a deep sea predator that humans rarely get to see, plus, learn how to tell the difference between an orca and a killer whale.
The exhibit will give you the perspective of the raptor hunting from the air! You'll also learn about how tigers and bears hunt and learn how scientists determine the age of a bear.
Learn about all kinds of predators that we live with every day by visiting the Discovery Science Place.
The museum is at 308 N. Broadway Avenue and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. There is an admission charge for adults and children -- check the website for pricing.
