The museum has a rotating schedule of exhibitions. The two currently on display are Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of the Dinosaurs (open until January 4th, 2015), a display of creatures that flew with their fingers, and The Power of Poison (open until August 10th): how venom can be used for good… or for murder!


With so much to see, taking one of the museum’s fun and exciting tours can be a great way to get the most out of your visit.

There are many tours, but amongst the most popular is the Dino tour. Led by one of the museum’s staff, this tour guides you through one of the world’s largest collection of dinosaur fossils, with your guide giving running commentary to make dinosaurs even more awesome.

Tickets are $22.50 for adults, and $12.50 for children.

Dark Universe

The museum is also currently showing a breathtaking movie called Dark Universe. This beautiful and mind-expanding film will take you from the depths of the cosmos, across the unthinkably long void to our own planet earth, and then back again as the movie explores some of the universe’s most intriguing mysteries: dark matter and dark energy.
