  • Sadly we sought for something far greater than what we found. Possibly because the building seems large but majority of it is for “staff only”. If you have older children then go for it but with young...  more »
  • I thought it was good for families with primary school age kids. There is a lot of large scary rubber Dinosaurs that move and make the noises that kids like when they are touched them. There is a lot ...  more »

  • Loads of fossils and info. Unlike a lot of other museums I've been to overseas, it strikes the balance perfectly between informative and interesting for grownups and fun for kids. Well laid out, great models and the dinosaur garden is great. No cafe on-site but you're a short walk from plenty of options and the entry fee allows you to come and go as you please all day.
  • The museum itself is well looked after and has a wide range of exhibits. Huge range of statues outside and the exhibitions inside are interesting and informative. I went on a guided tour here as an event with a bunch of other adults, the staff presenting were funny and explained things in clear and interesting ways. Would strongly recommend the guided tour for anyone, including adults
  • Amazing journey through time. Such a great spectacle at every turn. The game you play is cool and informative and also provides a fossil at the end that you get to take home. New exhibits, up to date with the most recent findings, very surprised to see feathered dinosaur there. 10/10 will go again!
  • I love the Junior Hunt that kept our two oldest boys busy, hunting and finding answers. So not only does it keep them engaged, they are learning as they go. The robotics are fun and entertaining as well. Fun exhibit and a great time with the family. Bonus: kids get a little prize for doing the hunt! Our dinosaurs loving kids enjoyed their time here.
  • It's very small and a bit pricey for what you get. That said my kids enjoyed it, though they are both under 4. They have lots of hands on activities like puzzles and dinosaurs you can touch so that's pretty cool. For the adults the timeline is informative and there are some real fossils. The party room is right next to the toilets. I recommend going at opening because it starts to get pretty busy after 11:30am.
