Quiet Morning

  • 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 offer a quiet morning every Tuesday morning from 10am-12pm (excluding ACT/NSW school holidays) 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.
