School programs and resources

Explore how prehistoric animals lived when you get up close with skeletons of dinosaurs, flying reptiles and giant extinct mammals. In the Dinosaur Walk exhibition, your students can see real dinosaur eggs, touch a real dinosaur thigh bone, walk alongside a long necked dinosaur and discover what they all looked like when they were alive.

We recommend that Kinder to Grade 4 groups book the Dinosaur Skeletons program. A variety of resources for learning about dinosaurs in the classroom are available at the links below.
