Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous

Are you ready for an adventure? Travel back in time as the Museum welcomes you to the Cretaceous period!

Using paleontological research this exhibition showcases more than 20 life-size, moving animatronic dinosaurs.

Learn about animal and plant life during the Cretaceous, how a meteorite triggered a mass extinction, how fossils are made, and if birds are really dinosaurs.

Grab a set of tools and head to the fossil dig pit, create your own dinosaur, or try your hand at the Wheel of Meal gameshow to test your own survival!

With your cameras at the ready, prepare to enter a world ruled by dinosaurs.

Venue: Pavilion 6, Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.
