Winnipeg, MB (July 25, 2017): Adults are invited to party the night away in World’s Giant Dinosaurs, with the latest incarnation of the Manitoba Museum’s Adult Evening. Dinos After Dusk, takes place on Thursday, August 10 from 7 pm to 11 pm.
Visitors will travel back in time for a prehistoric neon dance party enjoying after-hours access to the exhibit. With glass in hand, visitors will get to toast T. rex and munch on snacks beside a 66-foot-long Mamenchisaurus! DJ King Cabernet will provide music, while visitors test their “driving” skills in a dino racing obstacle course presented by the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre. Adults will enjoy some meaty learning with expert talks addressing the connection between birds and dinosaurs, and learn how dinosaurs could grow to such enormous sizes.
The Museum has extended its open hours on Friday evenings to 9 pm through the run of World`s Giant Dinosaurs (until Sep 4).
