Paleofest weekend at Burpee Museum of Natural History


If your a fan of dinosaurs then the Burpee Museum is just the place you want to be.

Fifteenth annual Paleofest kicked off this weekend at the museum.  

Over the course of the symposium, 30 guest lecturers will speak to kids and adults, including PBS's Dr. Scott Sampson from the popular children's program dinosaur train.  

The number of lecturers are bigger this year than previous years due to high attendance.  

Roughly 2-3 thousand people are expected to check out Paleofest this weekend and most of them are not from the area.
