RENO — The Wilbur D. May Museum’s upcoming spring exhibit "Creatures" opens March 2 and will be at the museum through June 2. The exhibit is an all-ages exploration of things that were, things that are and things that could be.

Visitors will come face-to-face with amazing full-size animatronics of wooly mammoths, saber-toothed tigers, dinosaurs and sea monsters. Audiences will also explore the fact and fiction surrounding creatures like Bigfoot, Tahoe Tessie, dragons and more. The "Creatures" exhibit features educational and interactive elements for kids, including a fossil dig, a glacier simulation display and several touch stations.

Related programming and special events are scheduled throughout the three-month exhibit, including storytelling and arts & crafts for kids, and a lecture series for adults. At 4 p.m. March 2, Dr. Joshua Bonde kicks off the first "Coversing with Creatures" lecture. Dr. Bonde comes from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas for a special talk on Nevada's dinosaurs.
