Dinosaurs Unearthed: Down to the Bone

Don't miss your chance for your class to come face-to-teeth (and feather!) with some of the most iconic species of all time...

Dinosaurs Unearthed: Down to the Bone ends November 4, 2018

Students will explore exciting and newly discovered dinosaurs, and learn all about a dinosaur’s hard-knock life through the injuries and diseases that left their mark.

From the massive 17.5-metre long-necked Omeisaurus, to the petite Psittacosaurus at just under a metre, the diversity of skeletons is rivaled only by the real and replica fossils.

Student will encounter a variety of skeletons, spanning the Mesozoic Era and travel to paleontological hot spots around the world, showcasing the differences between these incredible creatures. 

A prehistoric scene sets the stage for unique exhibits, like the story of a set of Gorgosaurus replica fossils showing some of the injuries and diseases present in one unlucky specimen, or a rare and never-before-seen complete Troodon egg nest, as well as feathered fossils of both dinosaurs and primitive birds.

Life-sized animatronics, model skeletons and real fossils immerse students into the world of dinosaurs as they discover the diversity within dinosaur families and unearth new information.
