Dino- mite display


Re: A sneak peek at museum’s dino display, Oct. 14.

I participat­ed in the preview festivitie­s celebratin­g the opening of the renovated West Wing of the Canadian Museum of Nature.

The Canadian Museum of Nature members who came, of course, brought their children so the new dinosaur gallery was filled with oohs and aahs from many little people. In addition, the live show DinoRock entertaine­d them with large dinosaur puppets and catchy songs about dinosaurs. Even the lunch menu was perfect for children. Loot bags, too! What a powerful idea to kick off the museum’s celebratio­ns with an event so cleverly geared to children.

No doubt bigger visitors to the museum will express their admiration for the renovation project.

Since this weekend, close to 6,000 visitors have already been delighted by the discovery of the new galleries.
