NORMAN — Complimentary museum admission, games, crafts, face painting, “discovery tables” with museum specimens to explore, photos with the bunny and, of course, an egg hunt of Jurassic proportions are among activities scheduled during the Sam Noble Museum’s annual spring celebration, “Eggstra-vaganza,” from 4 to 7 p.m. March 27 on the museum grounds.

Indoor activities will include the famous Dino Prize Walk, face painting by JCPenny Leadership volunteers and the Ladybug Life Cycles craft station. In addition to the events, museum exhibits are still open and available for viewing.

Families and children may pose for pictures with the celebratory bunny. Individuals may take their own photos at no charge. However, professional photos can be purchased on site for $5.

Outdoor activities will include a Pentaceratops ring toss, Saurophaganax beanbag toss, pick-a-duck and dig-a-dino. Three egg hunts, featuring 8,000 eggs, will take place on the museum’s south grounds and will begin at 6:30 sharp. Admission and activities are complimentary from 4 to 7 p.m.

The Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History is on the OU Norman campus at Timberdell Road and Chautauqua Avenue.
