In Durham, don’t miss the Museum of Life and Sciences Dino Egg Hunt March 25-27 when kids ages 6 and younger are invited to unearth colorful eggs, take a photo with a dino and dig up real fossils to take home. The price is $7 per egg hunter, and preregistration is recommended. 

Extreme Mammals — the exhibit of the biggest, smallest and most amazing mammals of all time — will be gone from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh after March 27. Take your children to see fossils and life-like models — including a 15-foot-high touchable model of the largest known land mammals.
