The National Dinosaur Museum has one of the largest prehistoric collections in the Southern Hemisphere and since the release of the fourth installment of Jurassic Park, busloads of fans are flocking to the capital to see some of the movie’s stars up close.
The National Dinosaur Museum, one of Canberra’s premier tourist attractions, offers an interactive insight into Earth’s long and dynamic history with the help of full skeletons, skulls, more than 50 lifelike model dinosaurs, as well as robotic dinosaurs that move, roar, blink, and breathe.
The museum offers you an insight into Australia’s prehistory, the biology of dinosaurs, and the science behind what we know about them today.
Established in 1993, The National Dinosaur Museum is celebrating more than 20 years of education and entertainment. Over this time the National Dinosaur Museum has developed into the largest display of dinosaur and prehistoric life in Australia.
The museums goal is to not only provide an educational experience, but create an interactive discussion which engages visitors. Their experienced tour guides have a background in science and a passion for the natural world and are trained to answer even the strangest questions.
Throughout the ACT and NSW school holidays the museum hosts 30 minute guided public tours of the exhibition regularly. Tours are fun and educational and suitable for all ages with no booking required.
