Explore-a-saurus

Explore how palaeontologists find out what they know about dinosaurs.

How do we know:

  • the colour of dinosaurs?
  • how fast they run?
  • what they ate?
  • how they cared for their young?

Interactive exhibits also allow your students to become forensic palaeontologists by uncovering fossils and bones, pitting their strength against a T-Rex jaw, comparing fossil plants that dinosaurs ate with modern plants, examining fossil insects under microscopes and investigating how dinosaurs made sounds and digested their food.
