Join us for an amazing day at Melbourne Museum, learning about our brand new Triceratops.

Begin your day in the museum’s theatre and discover everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Triceratops. Be delighted by a special appearance from a cute Cretaceous visitor. Then make your way to Triceratops: Fate of the Dinosaurs exhibition, where students will behold one of the most complete and finely preserved Triceratops ever found.

Immersive exhibition experiences will transport students into Cretaceous worlds. Touchable 3D printed Triceratops body parts and real fossil galleries provide an extraordinarily rich learning environment for all students.
