AR Dinosaur Hunt

20 Jul 2022 to 1 Nov 2022
Six prehistoric creatures are on the loose and we need you to track them down.
Event type: 
Free with Museum entry
Auckland War Memorial Museum


Dinosaur hunters of all ages can now take part in a new augmented reality trail at Auckland Museum. Use your phone to scan the codes to reveal lifelike AR prehistoric creatures - from T. rex and velociraptors to sea monsters and flying giants, right there in the galleries.  

The first code is waiting for you just inside Te Ao Mārama South Atrium and there are five more dotted around the Museum. Once you’ve located the dinos you can have your photo or a video taken with them to share with your friends. 

We have six prehistoric visitors scattered throughout the Museum - will you find them all?

The AR Dinosaur Hunt is free at the Museum until November, so come along and meet the dinosaurs! 

The AR Dinosaur Hunt requires the use of your own mobile device.
