The Western Australian Museum will be a hive of activity in April. Dinosaur Discovery roars into life at the WA Museum – Perth on Friday 11 April and it’s the must-see event of the school holidays. We’re celebrating the opening by throwing a party for the whole family! Come along to the Cretaceous Carnival: Family Fun Day on Saturday 12 April and in addition to the exhibition, enjoy a host of fun, free dino-activities.

School holiday programs will be in full swing at each of our museum locations during April. At the WA Maritime Museum kids can delve Under the Sea and make their own beach bag to keep. Also in Fremantle, kids can hone their Shipshape Skills at the Shipwreck Galleries, learning how to fire a cannon and hoist a sail. In Geraldton, we’re going Knee Deep in Nature  and exploring the wonderful world of insects, swans, reptiles and more. Kids can step back in time in Kalgoorlie-Boulder for some good old-fashioned fun and in Albany, they will discover more about the traditions and customs of Timor L’este.

Also opening is the fascinating exhibition SASR: Out of the Shadows. Featuring art and artefacts, this exhibition offers a glimpse into the world of one of Australia’s most intriguing and mysterious regiments. Catch it at the WA Museum – Perth from Saturday 12 April.
