Dinosaur rEvolution: Secrets of Survival

Opens 07-12-2018,  closes 05-05-2019

Argyle Galleries 1-4

Journey back millions of years to a time when fearsome beasts stalked the Earth!

This summer, TMAG’s galleries have been transformed into an amazing exhibition exploring the ancient world of the dinosaurs.

Featuring animatronics, 3D models, close-to-life sized murals, fossil casts and interactive displays!

How did dinosaurs evolve? What were their secrets of survival? And do they still exist today? Find the answers in Dinosaur rEvolution: Secrets of Survival.


Admission

This is a fee-paying exhibition due to the significant costs involved in presenting such an ambitious program. We are delighted to welcome our visitors to this special event as part of the Royal Society of Tasmania's 175th anniversary.
