Dozens of dinosaurs are packed into Duluth's DECC for a weekend of fun for the kids.

Discover the Dinosaurs is a hands-on exhibit that has been traveling the nation for about 3 1/2 years, setting up in a different city every weekend. For the next three days you can visit Pioneer Hall to see prehistoric times come to life.

Show Manager Tracy Beasley said there are 40 animatronic dinosaurs to see and some you can touch. He said "it's different than the museum-type exhibits, and some of the exhibits at zoos...you get a chance to push buttons and make them move, make them roar and make sound. You get a chance to ride some of the dinosaurs."

Tickets for the exhibit portion of the event are $18 for adults and $16 for kids. Doors are open Saturday 10 a.m. until 8 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.
