We visited the Museum at Prairie Fire to view their latest exhibition, “The World’s Largest Dinosaurs” which is all about sauropods and how they lived on the earth for 140 million years. The exhibition had a number of hands-on activities to involve the kids, and lots of great facts for learning more about how sauropods lived and thrived for so long.

After touring the exhibition, we explored the Discovery Room, which is always popular.
