Learn how Triceratops was adapted to its environment in this self-guided booklet program.

Explore the Fate of the Dinosaurs exhibition and come face to face with the most complete and finely preserved Triceratops ever found. Immersive Cretaceous experiences and touchable 3D-printed Triceratops body parts provide an extraordinarily rich learning experience.

As part of this program, school groups will be given a short introduction plus a student booklet, connected to curriculum, which can be used in the galleries or back at school. The booklet will assist students to make observations and identify the adaptations of Triceratops and other dinosaurs in the museum, as well as supporting further learning about adaptations in the classroom.

Bookings for Triceratops: Fate of the Dinosaurs must be made at least three weeks prior to visiting.
