Witte Museum March Newsletter
Witte Museum

March, 2010


Hey, kids! What time is it? It’s dinosaur time at the Witte. In just a few more days our galleries will be fully infested with the gigantic, moving, roaring … and sometimes feathered … beasts. Even now, your family can see the 22-foot T-rex on the Witte front lawn. This is a good time to be a Witte member. You’re family will want to visit again and again.
