Over the summer the Science Museum was approached by one of our camper’s parents about doing a mural somewhere at the Museum. Lori Lee is a well-known local muralist. She offered to volunteer her time to help make one of our rooms more attractive and engaging for incoming students.
The space that was chosen for the full wall mural was the Paleontology Lab, located in a former barn down by the visitor’s parking lot. Over the last few weeks Lori, along with her son and students from Schreiber High School, have been hard at work. They decided on a night time dinosaur scene. The new mural really makes the room come alive and makes the space extremely inviting for guests.
An official unveiling of the new dinosaur mural will be held soon. Until then, guests are still able to get a look at what Lori and her team of volunteers have done. Parents booking a Discovering Dinos or Paleontology birthday party are able to treat their guests to a visit to the paleo lab to see the fossils we have and to brush and scrape real bones. Teachers can also bring their classes here for either the Discovering Dinosaurs or Practical Paleontology programs which both include a trip down to the lab as well.
