EUGENE, Ore. -- The Jurassic Quest exhibit took over the Lane Events Center this weekend, bringing dinosaurs to life.

From dozens of detailed and lifelike dinosaurs to a room filled with hands-on exhibits, organizers say the event is a great way for kids to absorb information.

“A lot of museums, you walk through and it's very one dimensional,” said Danielle Arnold, a Jurassic Quest representative. “(Here) the kids can play in sand and dig for bones and learn … we make it hands on."

Some activities include digging for fossils, bounce houses, face painting, dino rides and a craft station.

Ticket prices vary depending on age:

$13 Kids ages 2-12
$22 VIP Kids ages 2-12
$18 Ages 13-64
$16 Seniors 65 and older
$16 with Military ID
