Dino Play | The Mind Museum

Days before our visit to The Mind Museum's latest traveling exhibition- Dino Play: Explore the Mind-blowing World of Dinosaurs, my daughter kept on asking me if dinosaurs are going to eat her. I told her she's so tiny, the dinosaur would not even notice her even if she's standing right in front of it. That calmed her a bit but she's still wary that the huge creature would eat us (her parents) instead... eeeep!

Dino Play | Explore the Mind-blowing World of Dinosaurs

Fast forward to our visit two Sundays ago, she ran towards one of the empty dinosaur eggshells and asked me to snap a photo of her as soon as we were at the entrance of the exhibit area. Clearly, she was so excited that all her apprehensions before visiting the exhibit were now gone.

Vintage Sarao Motors Jeep

My father-daughter tandem did not pass the chance to have their photo taken while inside this original Sarao Motors Jeep. The vintage vehicle sort of welcomed us to a fun adventure that lies ahead.

Brachi | A Brachiosaurus

 I am a Brachiosaurus
Because of my height and long neck 
I'm one of the tallest
dinosaurs ever discovered!
I ate plants from the tops of tall trees. 

Dino Dig

One of the four nests we visited was Dino Dig where my daughter tried her hand at being a paleontologist- a scientist who study dinosaurs and ancient biology through fossils, regularly go to the field and dust off rocks to look for fossils and what their surroundings imply about the dead creature and its previous life- for a day.

My daughter used one of the Paleontologist Field Kit provided to reveal fossils hidden in the excavation site (see photo above).

Dino Lab

Up next is the Dino Lab where she was able to examine actual fossil remains. Oh, that's a dinosaur poop (which has since turned to stone) you see up there... eeew!

Dino Fun

Dino Fun was where my three-year-old daughter spent most time getting her hands on various activities like Make Your Own Fossils, Play with the Dino Family Tree, and Learn about a Day in the Life of a Dinosaur.

Dino Lookout Tower

She even climbed up the Dino Lookout Tower where she spotted several rogue dinosaurs hiding in the vicinity.

Dino Den

Dino Den is an activity area recommended for kids with age 2 years and up. My daughter tried on one of the dinosaur costumes and she even wore a pair of dinosaur slippers. The slippers left dinosaur footprints when she stomped around the forest land.

My daughter left Dino Play with only fun memories and of course, she also learned a lot about these intriguing creatures that have roamed around the earth million of years ago.
