Triceratops Skull Replica at the Danville Science Center

DANVILLE, Va. (WSET) -- You won't want to miss what the Danville's Science Center has dug up.

A replica of a Triceratops skull, that is 68 million-years-old, is now on display at the Science Center.

They said it's the first of its kind.

The Danville Science Center is borrowing it from from the Virginia Museum of Natural History in Martinsville.

Right now they have fossils but nothing this size.

The Executive Director of the Science Center, Adam Goebel, said it is an interactive display.

"We use it to engage our visitors, in a deeper understanding of what the world was like millions and millions of years ago, it also acts as a perfect segway into our current fossil collection," said Goebel.

Next week, the Science Center will have regular hours during spring break.

The skull will be there until July.
