Dinosaur rEvolution: Secrets of Survival

This exhibition has now closed.

Explore the thrilling world of dinosaurs and their descendants with animatronics, 3D models and heaps of fossil casts you can touch.

This all ages exhibition explores the science behind recent fossil finds, providing an insight into the true, bizarre and complex nature of dinosauria.


Things to see and do:

  • Expect lots of dinosaur skeletons and bones, and drawings of how they looked based on recent fossil findings. Did T.rex really have brown scales?
  • Run your hands over the fossil casts that have a green ‘ok to touch’ sign next to them. One of the casts is a nest of dinosaur eggs. Who would have thought dinosaurs would sit on a nest?
  • Find out more about how some dinosaurs evolved into birds, after an asteroid hit Earth 66 million years ago. Dinosaurs were ready for this and evolved to take over the sky as birds!
  • Enjoy triggering four animatronic dinosaurs by walking near them. Hear them roar and watch them move. They’re cheeky and will talk back, but they won’t bite.
  • Families can take time out in the kids’ Palaeo Playspace to dig up skeletons, examine fossils at the kids touch table and craft your own dinosaur mask.
  • For families and children who may enjoy their dinosaurs with a little less ‘roar’, we will present an hour of modified (quieter) viewing of the exhibition during selected Dinosaur rEvolution Sound Down sessions on Saturday 14 July, Tuesday 11 September and Thursday 18 October. 

Once you have finished in Dinosaur rEvolution, take a trip up to Level 2 to visit the dinosaurs of Ancient Queensland and enjoy the rest that the Museum has to offer.
