Academy of Natural Sciences hosts ‘Dinos After Dark’ event

The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University remained open after-hours to host a Dinos After Dark event on Friday. The pay-what-you-wish event offered food, family activities and a Dino Drafts Beer Garden.

A 40-foot long Tyrannosaurus rex stretched out among mingling attendees in the museum’s Dinosaur Hall. All exhibits remained open until 8 p.m. for visitors to stroll through. 

“It’s something cool for the kids to do,” said 39-year-old Chris Miller, of Ambler, Pennsylvania, who attended the event. “They don’t usually get to stay up this late.”

“I actually get to see real dinosaur skeletons here, and I get to see the Mosasaurus and swimming reptiles from the dinosaur age,” said 8-year-old Cyrus Motamedi, adding his favorite dinosaur is the Spinosaurus.
