Got kids that love dinosaurs? Dinosaur rEvolution, Secrets of Survival is the latest exhibition at Newcastle Museum and will be of interest to those interested in these prehistoric creatures.
The exhibition focuses on previously unreleased secrets of dinosaurs. New research indicates that some of the dinosaurs were covered with spikes, quills, horns and feathers.
It’s a fascinating exhibition for those who love dinosaurs and there were plenty of little dino lovers on the day we visited.
It’s interesting to see dinosaurs with horns, feathers and different markings. Quite a change from the traditional grey dinosaurs that we’re used to seeing.
Kids will love the life-like animatronic dinosaurs that move and roar. The T-Rex is equal parts scary with his ferocious roar and funny with its tiny hands.
There’s also plenty of interesting fossils, skeletons and dinosaur scenes to look at in the exhibition.
The only drawback is that there isn’t that much to do apart from look at the dinosaurs and read the accompanying text.
Unlike previous exhibitions, this exhibition lacks interactive features so kids who aren’t as interested in dinosaurs might get bored easily. As there’s lots of interesting information to read, this exhibition might be best suited to school aged readers.
The exhibition runs from Saturday 28 October 2017 to Sunday 28 January 2018 at Newcastle Museum so perfect for some summer dino fun.
Children (3+) $5
