Step into the desert of Patagonia and discover incredible new fossil finds. See how palaeontologists reconstruct the past, and journey back in time to explore dinosaur adaptations and environments. Patagonia and Aotearoa New Zealand were part of Gondwana when dinosaurs ruled – could similar dinosaurs have roamed here?
This family-friendly exhibition includes models, fossils, videos, and fun activities – walk like a dino, sound like a dino, even create a virtual dino!
- a 30-metre-long cast of Patagotitan
- eleven other precise casts, from tiny Manidens to ferocious Tyrannotitan, which preyed on Patagotitan
- one of the biggest fossilised bones ever found: Patagotitan’s femur.
This touring exhibition from Argentina’s Museo Paleontológico Egidio Feruglio will be at Te Papa from 16 December 2023 to 28 April 2024.
