With 23 complete skeletons and over 300 displays of individual fossils, the National Dinosaur Museum continues to grow and expand its collection and depth of information. Roam through our interactive dinosaur garden to get up close and personal with the dinosaurs including Canberra’s famous big dinosaur, the larger than life Stan the T-Rex.

Our gift shop contains the largest range of prehistoric gifts in Canberra with something to suit all ages. The fossil, crystal and minerals shop is home to one of the largest collections in Australia and is a mini-museum in its own right. There is no admission fee if you would only like to visit the museum gift shop and will not be entering the museum galleries.

Book your visit to the Australian Dinosaur Museum online today.

The Dinosaur Garden

In 2020 we have re-developed and expanded our dinosaur garden with lots of new replica dinosaurs and interactive zones for younger children.

The dinosaur garden is now part of the general admission entry ticket so only accessible with paid admission.

Buy your ticket online today to skip the queue and jump straight into the  Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods.

Quiet Hour

The museum contains several animatronic dinosaurs which will move and make sounds when the sensors are triggered as visitors walk past.

We appreciate that some visitors may be noise sensitive and we will offer a quiet afternoon on the first Tuesday afternoon of each month from 3 p.m – 5 p.m. when the animatronics will be switched off to allow for a more peaceful viewing experience. Over the ACT/NSW school holiday periods, we will not be able to offer this service.
