Grand Rapids Community College and the Grand Rapids Public Museum hosted a “Night at the Museum” special for Grand Rapids Community College students and their guests on Nov. 13. The first 175 students could bring a guest with them, and get into the museum and the new Dinosaurs Unearthed exhibit for free, along with free snacks and refreshments.

The dinosaur exhibit features life size, moving dinosaurs, and recent findings in paleontology. Among the life size dinosaurs are the Tyrannosaurus-Rex, Triceratops, and many other well known species. There are also iPads placed around the exhibit which let you look at some of the dinosaurs and see some more natural movements that they might have made when alive. There are a few skeleton models also on display. The event runs through April 27. General admission to the museum is $8(free with a Raider Card) and admission to Dinosaurs Unearthed is $4.
