Akron Fossils and Science Center Meet up

Posted by   + Show Post

I don't know if anyone has ever been here before but it looks pretty cool!  It is located in Copley, so pretty close for most of you.  They do hands on guided tours through their exhibits, which includes real fossils and dinosaur bones for the kids to touch.  After the guided tour, they have an area called Truassic Park which has DINO 500, a racetrack for little ones with toy cars, bikes, wagons, etc!  They also have a Noah's Ark, obstacle course, slide, swings, and tiny-tot zip-line. For groups of 10 or more it is $6 per person, children 2 and under are free.  I spoke to the woman there and told her the age of the kids and she said they will cater the guided tour to the age group.  They have a gift shop which has snacks in it and we are able to bring our lunches.  They have both indoor and outdoor accomodations for eating.  The website is http://akronfossils.com/home.  I have a date set of THURSDAY JULY 26 AT 10AM.  This obviously can be changed, but I thought I would get something scheduled with them.  Please let me know if you are interested and if this date works!

Also, please respond with number of children and adults.

Thanks Andrea! It was a neat outdoor area, and O told her dad all about the dinosaur's teddy bear and missing tooth.

Definitely had a good time.  Brandon and I went back inside and had a little lunch.  Then he wanted to go back outside.  This time he did something other than just sit in one of those cars.  We never left until noon!  I couldn't get him out of there!

Thank you Andrea for setting this up.
