West Michigan children are getting a chance to explore the world of fossils, dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures.

The "Amazing Dinosaurs" exhibit opens at the Grand Rapids Children's Museum Tuesday, March 7. It's a brand new exhibit for the museum.

The exhibit offers children a chance to touch real fossils, explore a dino habitat and come face to face with their favorite extinct dinosaurs.

Amazing Dinosaurs features a wide variety of ways to educate, inspire and engage young children. In addition to discovery stations, there are also interactive activities.

The exhibit runs through June 25. More information can be found on the Grand Rapids Children's Museum website and The Antiquities Company website.
