The Wilbur May Museum’s spring exhibit Creatures opens in just one week! Right now staff and volunteers are busy transforming the museum into a prehistoric paradise. The three-month exhibit features life-size animatronic dinosaurs, wooly mammoths, and saber-toothed tigers, along with sea monsters, Bigfoot, and dragons! Kids of all ages will love the interactive elements, including a fossil dig, glacier simulation, and several touch stations.
