September Open House a Monster Success!

Toronto Area children meet Fossil Realm's Mosasaur skull

Hoards of excited, awe-struck children met our Mosasaur at this past weekend's show. We couldn't be happier to see the joy it brought to them. 

"My kids were thrilled to see the mosasaur and all the other treasures... the grab bags of fossils were perfect"

-Kind regards, Jennifer Shelton

We reached many more people than usual due to the news coverage that our mosasaur received.

It started with a front page article a local paper, the Vaughan Citizen. Soon after, the Toronto Star picked up the story, just in time to inform the public about our open house.
