National Dinosaur Museum, Canberra Reviews
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.
Fun for whole family. My son loved the quiz part. It kept him occupied the whole time and he got a fossilized shark tooth as a gift for getting all answers correct.
Great place for kids. The way history is developed makes it even more interesting. I loved the exposition of crystals. They were so colourful, and bright...never seen b4.
The Museum though named after Dinosaur,mainly consist of them but houses other animals and few birds too.Outside the entrance and near the road a hoarding is put to indicate that the museum is open on all 7 days a week.4 models of Dinosaurs are also kept there to give a sample view. There are models of some animals out side the Zoo.One cab is provided there for kids to enjoy.In side the Zoo many animals and bids are only models.How ever the skeletons of some animals kept there are real ones.and are really a treat to watch.It is an educational trip for Zoology students and fun to watch so many animals and few birds under one roof for not only kids but elders too.The real skeletons of some animals like elephant and Dinosaurs are worthy of watching.The Trip is enjoyable for all and we feel like repeating the trip if possible.Kids got thrill in getting photographed with the wild animals and felt happy.The cab drive for the kids is memorable for kids because they can be behind the steering!Of course the cab is stationary.
Wouldn't bother. I went without kids but I can't see how this would entertain any child over 2 yrs old. It's also the only museum in Canberra that I visited that I had to pay for ($16/adult) which was just a total rip off. The museum is one floor and even if you read everything (which we did), takes 30mins! It's also outside of the city centre so you have to account for travel time too. Only reason I am giving it 2 stars and not 1 is because they had some good displays and interesting reads, if you're into that sort of thing.
