Dinosaur lovers, this is your weekend.

A hands-on exhibit called "Discover the Dinosaurs" is at the Lancaster Event Center through Sunday.

Kids and families can get up close and touch some of the life–sized, moving dinosaurs on display.

Julie Brown from Bellevue says her son and his friend had a blast.

"I was actually kind of impressed, I just thought it was going to be exhibits, but there's so much for both the boys to do, so there's fun things but they're still learning about dinosaurs," Brown said.

Kids can also ride on the back of a dinosaur, dig and mine for fossils, get their face painted and more.

Admission ranges from $12 to $20 depending on your age and choice of activities.

Discover the Dinosaurs is open until 8 Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m to 7 p.m. on Sunday.
