Northern Ireland’s prepares itself for a pre-historic invasion of epic proportions…
The most extensive and interactive dinosaur exhibition ever to come to Northern Ireland is currently showing at the Ulster Museum.
The “must-see” attraction of the summer, ‘Age of the Dinosaur’ is a fascinating journey through the worlds in which dinosaurs lived and includes life-sized moving dinosaurs alongside more than 60 unique specimens including real dinosaur bones.
Accompanying the exhibition is a fully interactive and hands-on discovery zone – Discover Dinosaurs where visitors can handle original fossils including giant leg bones, skulls and dinosaur eggs. Children can also take part in a special ‘Dino Dig’ activity and learn how to be a palaeontologist, or measure their own height against the actual height of some dinosaurs.
Age of the Dinosaur exhibition family tickets (5 people with a maximum of 2 adults) are priced at £18.95, adults £6.95, children and concessions £3.95, children 3 and under go free. Pre-book tickets at www.nmni.com.
