Join the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History in a celebration of prehistoric life! The Colossal Fossil Festival will be held at the museum on Saturday, July 25 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Guests will get to go back in time 23 million years to the Miocene Epoch and meet the exotic creatures who lived during a time when Santa Barbara was submerged in water and humans did not yet exist. This can’t-miss event is sure to be a blast for the whole family.

Guests will be given the opportunity to:

  • Tour MEGALODON: Largest Shark that Ever Lived
  • Chew like a Miocene monster
  • Become a shark-aeologist and a paleo-artist
  • Touch real fossils
  • Talk with paleontologists as they prepare fossils from Madagascar

  • Sing silly science songs with musician Tim Griffin
  • Complete the scavenger hunt and win a prize!
