Do you know an Afrovenator from a Jobaria? Or a Stegosaurus from a Giganotosaurus?
Whether you’re a palaeontologist in the making or just a fan of Jurassic Park, you’ll be fascinated by the prehistoric world as you walk amongst real dinosaur skeletons and life-size models, as well as the fossil teeth, skulls and claws of these out-of-this-world creatures.
Learn about dinosaurs, like the Muttaburrasaurus, that once roamed Australia. Be awed by the skull of a Centrosaurus, and compare the bird-like features of the Bambiraptor to the only dinosaurs still living today, modern birds. With our interactive displays you can smell the Mesozoic world, make dinosaur calls and even see the world from a dinosaur's perspective.
Be sure not to miss the world’s first anatomically correct model of a T-Rex – a dissected 11-metre long replica created for the documentary, T-Rex Autopsy, donated to the Australian Museum by National Geographic.
