A permanent display of dinosaurs & prehistoric specimens
Established in 1993, the National Dinosaur Museum is home to 23 complete skeletons, over 300 displays of individual fossils and is Australia's largest permanent display of prehistoric specimens, making this place of interest one attraction not to miss out on in Australia's capital!
The excitement begins even before you step inside the Museum!
The Museum is one of Canberra's premier tourist attractions and it is not hard to see why - with spectacular exhibitions including the Dinosaur Garden, which features lifelike fibreglass dinosaur models, as well as the extensive collection of life-size models and skeletons displayed within the museum.
You can easily spend hours just at the Dinosaur Garden!
The Museum's exhibits take you to a journey back in time, from the Earth's beginnings to today's animal discoveries and cover the history of life on earth with fossils from 700 million-year-old marine fauna through to fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals as well as experiencing the animatronic dinosaurs that move, roar, blink and breathe.
Skeletons, life-like models, and fossils are some of the exhibits that can be found at The National Dinosaur Museum.
