RAWR! Titans of the Past at the Science Centre

I know lots of kids (mainly boys) who LOVE dinosaurs and the new Titans of the Past – Dinosaurs & Ice Age Mammals exhibition at the Science Centre will totally knock their socks off!

We attended a preview of the exhibition last Thursday and there were lots of fun activities for the kids. From balloon sculpting to body painting and airbrush tattoos, there was so much to entertain the kids even before we even entered the exhibition!

The 3,000 square metres exhibition features two international travelling dinosaur exhibitions from The Museum of the Rockies (MOR), USA Montana and Aurea Exhibitions, Argentina. The exhibition from MOR was developed by world renowned paleontologist Dr Jack Horner (technical advisor for the Jurassic Park movies!). There are real fossils (including the largest T-Rex skull ever found), replicas and state-of-the art animatronics.

Titans of the Past is an impressive exhibition that’s worth visiting. Anya is not particularly interested in dinosaurs but she really enjoyed the exhibition so I’m planning a return visit with Adam!. We have been watching Ice Age at home so he’ll really appreciate seeing the animals at their actual size!

The Titans of the Past exhibition runs till 23 February 2014 at the Science Centre Annexe from 10am to 6pm. Inclusive of admission to the Science Centre, it’s $25 for Adults and $19 for Children (3-12 years old). Plan to spend at least 2 hours there!
