Imagine you are clad with expedition attire and goggles, your fossil brush in hand. You step gingerly over some rocks as you take in the wind-swept badlands of New Mexico. In the distance, something catches your eye. You can almost make out a promising shape slightly exposed on the brown, dry terrain. You are a curious paleontologist, and you simply must find out what it is.
You’ve entered The Big Dig, the Academy’s very own fossil dig, which underwent renovations in fall 2014. The biggest addition actually sounds tiny—but that’s only because it’s catered to our very smallest paleontologists.
Access is ncluded in general admission.
