Great Hall Family Learning Exhibit
Reading the Rocky Book of the Past:
Dinosaur Footprints in the Connecticut River Valley

An exhibit about the 19th-century discovery of dinosaur footprints in the Connecticut River Valley and local people, like Dexter Marsh and Edward Hitchcock, who played starring roles in the story. Designed for fun family learning by Deerfield’s Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association (PVMA), the space includes two simulated 19th century cabinets (precursors to today’s museums), a “make your own collection” takeaway activity, dinosaur track reproductions and more! Be sure to come to the opening event Saturday, February 17, 1-4 pm. (During some of the larger events in the Great Hall in February and March, the exhibit might not be fully visible. Please check our events calendar or call 413-863-3221 to find out more.)
