  • Loved it a lot. But only one time you feel better and people may not like going again and again. But it's worth for one time. Kids who likes Dinosaurs will love this place a lot.

  • 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.

  • I went there for the first time to take my child. Amazing collection of fossils, meteorites & of course dinosaur models, some of which are animatronic. Child enjoyed the kids area too & the outdoor playground. My favourite part was their huge gem & mineral display (some also for sale) - sensational! Could have spent an hour easy just looking at that but the kid was dragging me away.

  • An interactive dinosaur museum, quite small considering the entry price ($45 for a family pass as of 08/12/18), a nice play area out the front and dinosaurs that move and roar inside and out. The staff are friendly and there are lots of great nick nacks to purchase.

  • 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.
