Hadrosaurus foulkii—New Jersey’s second oldest dinosaur after Frankie Valli—is on display through April at the Academy of Natural Sciences. Even though you’ve got months to peep this thing, we recommend checking him out this Saturday for the TK//SECOND, THIRD? annual Dinosaur Day. The event includes the Big Dig, a hands-on exhibit where you can live like a paleontologist by searching for bones. Visitors can also view the museum’s other life-sized skeletal mounts and drop by interactive stations and educational kiosks to learn fun facts about dinos and other prehistoric creatures. And if trivia isn’t enough to pique your interest, take comfort in the fact that at least you’ll leave knowing how to pronounce words like Pachycephalosaurus and Deinonychus. (Shahida Muhammad)
