Discover how Triceratops lived in this self-guided booklet program.

Triceratops was a living, breathing animal that walked the Earth 67 million years ago! What did Triceratops eat? How did it eat? What animals did Triceratops exist with? What was the life cycle Triceratops?

Students will delight in the most complete and finely preserved Triceratops ever found in the Fate of the Dinosaurs exhibition. Immersive exhibition experiences will transport students into Cretaceous worlds, along with touchable 3D printed Triceratops body parts which provide an extraordinarily rich learning environment.

 Through participating in this program students will:

  • Be able to make authentic scientific observations.
  • Explore how dinosaurs hatched and grew!
  • Identify external features of Triceratops.
  • Sort information collected in the galleries to report back to their community.

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.

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