Dig in to National Fossil Day at The Bishop

Business

Learn more about fossils and receive half-price admission to The Bishop as the Bradenton museum celebrates National Fossil Day from 10 a.m. to  5 p.m. on Saturday, October 19. This year, they will feature a special exhibition organized by the American Museum of Natural History. The exhibition 'Giants, Dragons & Unicorns: The World of Mythic Creatures,' helps guests discover how the fossils of prehistoric animals led to human speculation about their origins — and to misidentification and the creation of myths to explain such creatures. The exhibition includes models and casts of prehistoric species.

On National Fossil Day, you can also check out displays from local fossil clubs and enthusiasts, try fossil-related activities and crafts and be a paleontologist in the Mosaic Backyard Universe's Dig Pit. Admission is half-price on National Fossil Day; members of the Discovery Society always get in free.
