Do you have a child who loves dinosaurs and everything about them? Let them spend the day during the school holidays with our education team and experience a day filled with prehistoric fun and activities. On arrival the children will be presented with their trainee palaeontologist badge and from there, be involved with a range of inspiring and unique opportunities.

The children will get a hands-on with our precious fossils and dinosaur bones, explore our dinosaur galleries by torchlight and experience some behind the scenes action around our museum. 

Our Junior palaeontologists will also create their own fossils to take home and will have the chance to try out a Virtual Reality prehistoric experience.

With a maximum of only 12 children per day, this is sure to be an extraordinary day they will never forget!

Please bring snacks, lunch, water bottle and wear closed-toe shoes.
