“Dinosaurs: Dawn to Extinction” will take visitors on a journey from the Precambrian, Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous time periods. Through a timeline thread, visitors will be transported more than 600 million years back in time to learn the unique story of what came before and after the dinosaurs, and gain a deeper understanding on how these species evolved and adapted to changing environmental conditions.

The highly interactive exhibition will also feature some of the oldest dinosaurs fossils ever discovered on the planet and many little-known species, some never before seen by the public. These are in addition to over 50 original artworks by Peter Trusler that showcase intriguing species being reconstructed. Key fossils on display include a 18-metre long Apatosaurus, a 17.6-metre long Lessemsaurus sauropod specimen, a 2-billion year old rock (Banded Iron Formation), a new fossil of Adeopapposaurs discovered in Argentina three months ago, as well as the tiny animals that ran beneath the feet of these giants.
