"Chinasaurs" come to Maryland

If you are a dinophile in the vicinity of Baltimore, Maryland, you may want to clear your plans for this weekend

If you are a dinophile in the vicinity of Baltimore, Maryland, you may want to clear your plans for this weekend. Tomorrow, the Maryland Science Center in the city's Inner Harbor will raise the curtain on the traveling exhibit " Chinasaurs-Dinosaur Dynasty." The webpage promoting the exhibit promises over 20 dinosaur skeletons, animatronic dinosaurs, and lots of artwork connecting dinosaurs to China's cultural heritage.

I am sure there will be some casts of feathered dinosaurs in with the rest of the skeletons, and it looks like this is an exhibit that is not to be missed. It will run through September of this year. Even if you can't make it, though, the Maryland Science Center has a whole hall dedicated to dinosaurs and is chock-full of other fantastic skeletons. I may just have to make a trip to Baltimore soon!
