Slumbering Dinosaur Morning
For parents with young children who get a little spooked by the moving dinosaurs that roar and flash their big, nasty teeth, the National Dinosaur Museum is happy to announce an animatronic-free morning.
Between 10 and 11am every Tuesday morning (except school holidays), all of the NDM’s animatronics will be turned off, allowing these kids to roam and enjoy the experience of seeing the dinosaurs.
The National Dinosaur Museum is one of Canberra’s premier tourist attractions.
Established in 1993, the museum has grown from just a small collection to housing the largest permanent display of dinosaur and other prehistoric fossil material in Australia.
Focusing on education and entertainment, the museum offers a wide variety of activities to schools and the general public. From guided tours of the museum, to birthday parties for the kids, there is sure to be something to suit your needs.
The museum’s exhibits take you on a journey through time, from the Earth’s very beginnings to some of the most recent animals. Through this you can follow the evolution of life, and see just how successful the dinosaurs were.
