Visitors to the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History can make their way through two egg hunt mazes, take their own photos with “the bunny,” play games and create spring-inspired crafts at this year’s Eggstravaganza spring celebration.

The annual event takes place from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 28, and features complimentary admission for all guests. Indoor activities include the famous Dino Prize Walk, face painting by JCPenney Leadership volunteers, crafts and “Discovery Tables” to explore museum specimens.

In addition to those activities, visitors can explore the museum’s two newest exhibits, “Fluent Generations: The Art of Anita, Tom and Yatika Fields” and “Celestial Siblings: Parallel Landscapes of Earth and Mars.”

Families and children are invited to take their own photos with the celebratory bunny. Excavations, the museum store, also will have spring home décor such as framed butterflies, plus unique handcrafted jewelry, plush animals and other children’s toys.

Outdoor activities will include a Pentaceratops ring toss, Saurophaganax beanbag toss, pick-a-duck and dig-a-dino. Children of all ages can participate in two egg hunt mazes — one simpler maze children may enter with their parents, and another more elaborate maze for children only. This event is BYOB (Bring Your Own Basket).

Eggstravaganza (and other museum exhibits and programs) is sponsored by Fowler Honda and Jones PR Inc. and is produced in partnership with the JCPenney Leadership Program in the OU Michael F. Price College of Business. Students from the OU JCPenney Leadership Program assist with planning and staffing of the event.

The Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History is located on the University of Oklahoma Norman campus at J. Willis Stovall Road and Chautauqua Avenue. For accommodations, call 405-325-4712 or visit
