“The Great Dinosaur Hunt is fun for kids with special Dinosaur Explorer sheets to help them unravel the prehistoric puzzle. All those children who correctly crack the code and solve the dinosaur mystery win a dinosaur sticker. The Dinosaur Museum is a great place for the family whatever the weather,” said Tim Batty, the Museum’s curator.

“Dinosaurs are perennially popular with children and the Museum’s hands on and interactives let them explore and discover more about these awesome prehistoric creatures: Build a dinosaur and enter into their world using Touch-screen displays; Feel what it was like to touch a dinosaur with the Feely Box; compare yourself to a dinosaur with the Dinosaurs and You; and find out the colours dinosaurs might have been with the Colour Box.”
