Museum Mondays are full of creative dinosaur-related activities perfect for a night out with the family. Contact Jordon Henderson at 801.766.5013 for more information.

February 7 Cupids Valentine Mask-querade! – Cupid has tried everything he can think of to get the dinosaurs to be friends for Valentines Day, but for some reason he can’t get the plant eaters and the meat eaters to get along. This year Cupid is hosting a Mask-querade party at the museum for you and our dinosaurs! All of the dinosaurs will be in Masks, disguising who they are so meat eaters and plant eaters will be tricked into becoming friends at the party. Make your own mask and then join the dinosaurs in the exhibits for the Mask-querade party and see if Cupids plan worked! Mask-querade activities include: Mask making, Mask-querade hunt and best mask voting for our Dinos masks, Cupids Bow Shoot, Steal My Heart, and Whose Eyes are Those? This will be a Valentine party your little ones won’t want to miss!

February 14: Love Struck Raptor – It’s the month of love and Cupid has never been busier shooting love arrows. When he stopped by the Museum to shoot a few Dinos he made a mistake and hit cranky Utah Raptor with one of his largest arrows. On this silly Valentines hunt see if you can find how many dinosaurs were smooched by our love struck Raptor. Make a chocolate kiss Valentine for your Valentine and have a Happy Valentines Day!

February 21: In Love with Paris – 13 of our smallest dinosaurs, the Compies, known as Compsognathus are from France and have always been in love with Paris. They’ve brought their favorite parts of Paris to the Museum to teach their dinosaur friends and you all about Parisian culture and some of the most famous places in Paris. Join us for this Museum Monday to see the Compies 5 favorite things about France. Stop by the Children’s art Gallery to learn about the Louvre and make a piece of original artwork, see how the Eiffel Tower was built and try your luck at the Eiffel Tower Toss, find out what could be hiding in the Notre Dame Cathedral Bell Tower, learn a new thing or two about our little French Compies, and make sure to stop by the Paris sweet shop to dip a chocolate treat!

February 28: Could You Survive The Stone Age? – Cold temperatures, making tools from stone, hunting large Mammoths, protecting your family from animals, and setting up camp over and over again each time your tribe moved were all a part of daily life in the Stone Age. Join a Stone Age tribe and take a journey through time to learn about Stone Age men, women, and children. In your tribe you’ll learn about their tools, how to hunt Mammoth, how they stayed warm, and what was important to them. You’ll create a cave drawing of your own and find out along the way if you could have survived the Stone Age.
