Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous

Prepare for a close encounter with some of the most extraordinary creatures to ever walk the earth at Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous. Featuring more than 20 moving, life-size dinosaur models, this is a dino-exhibition like none you’ve seen before!

You will be blown away by the size and authenticity of the fascinating creatures that lived 145-66 million years ago in an era that boasted the most diverse range of dinosaurs. The exhibition will feature all your favourites including a T-Rex and a 16 metre long Brachiosaurus but also include a number of species rarely seen before. Each of the models, made to scientifically exact specifications, will move and interact with one another.

In addition to the dinosaurs, this exhibition features cutting edge 3D augmented reality technology not seen before in Western Australia. There will also be fossils and dinosaur specimens to touch and feel. Kids can also enjoy a range of informative, hands-on activities in the dedicated play area located in the museum grounds.

NOTE: The lift into this gallery is currently out-of-order, meaning wheel chair and pram access is currently restricted. Please call 1300 134 081 for more details.
