National Dinosaur Museum, Canberra Reviews
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. With 23 complete skeletons, and over 300 displays of individual fossils, the museum continues to grow and expand our collection and our depth of information.
I liked the place. I am personally not a massive fan of dinosaurs but others are. I REALLY LOVED there gift shop my second favourite ever. However the tour was a little boring but mainly fun. I think it's great for kids and adults. I recommend this place now I like dinosaurs a lot more than before.
A fun place to visit, especially for kids, but don't expect too much. While a tour from one of the passionate guides is great for both young and old, the entire exhibition is on a single floor, with another exhibit for mammoth on the floor bellow. The ratio of real fossils and skeletons/bones to replicas is disappointing. Some of the best fun you'll have aside from a tour is all the Dinosaur statues out fun. Make sure to keep your ticket for Cockington Green across the street, or go there first for a 20% discount for your ticket!
This was a nice half day trip outside the centre of the city. Mostly parents and their kids here, but still a worthwhile visit for adults curious about the history of our planet. Overall about a two hour visit and a nice escape from the cold! The shop on the first floor has an assortment of dinosaur related toys and a massive collection of various stones and minerals for purchase.
Whilst I do not want to be negative, the most fun to be had is in the entrance. The exhibits inside are amazing but really do not cater in my opinion to children as maybe it should. Still worth a look.
