MARTINSVILLE, Va. (WSET) - You can travel back in time to a prehistoric age this month!

The Virginia Museum of Natural History in Martinsville is holding a Dino Festival on July 21 and 22. It is a celebration of their new exhibit.

We're told there will be hands-on activities, presentations and new displays, like a triceratops.

There will also be a Stegosaurus display from the Smithsonian and fossils collected by scientists in the field.

"We have a triceratops skull, one of the largest ever found, that's been uncovered over a period of a couple of years by our scientists and so visitors can have the chance to get up close and see the work that the scientists do," Ryan Barber, the museum deputy director, says.

The Dino Festival will run Friday the 21 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday the 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
