Prehistoric Studio



Worlds collide as we explore creatures of the Cretaceous through digital media and technology!

In 2015, Holiday Programs erupt, mashing up modern with ancient, as we explore the moving image against our prehistoric backdrop.

Join us for drop in-activities where you can design your own flipbook, strike a pose in our prehistoric photo-booth, or create your own funny meme to share with your friends. Or... come on board for one of our exclusive workshops.

Visitors to Prehistoric Studio are encouraged to bring their great ideas, making hands, and smart devices. Drop-in sessions request a donation of $2 per participant. Workshops are pre-paid at $10 per child. Activities and workshops support the new, touring exhibition, Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous.

WHEN: April 7 - 17 (Mon - Fri). Weekdays only
From 10:30am - 12:30pm and from 1:30pm - 3:30pm
