The Oklahoma Museum Network's "Red Dirt Dinos: An Oklahoma Dinosaur Adventure" exhibit will close March 20.

Science Museum Oklahoma guests can bank on extra time for science exploration, dinosaur adventures, tours of the museum’s 1929 Pullman parlor car plus additional Science Live and planetarium showtimes from March 11-19 at the museum located at 2020 Remington Place in Oklahoma City.

The exhibit features three interactive, lifelike robotic dinosaurs and a variety of hands-on components that allow visitors to explore Oklahoma’s early Cretaceous period.

Guests can also take in the just-opened “Sole Expression: The Art of the Shoe” in SMO’s smART Space art galleries as well as tour the museum’s fully-restored Pullman parlor car on the museum’s first floor. The train car, normally closed to the public to maintain its preservation, will be open for tours from March 13-19.
