Baby Dinosaurs are taking over Newcastle these school holidays!

The Great Baby Dinosaur Show has arrived at Newcastle Museum just in time for the School Holidays.

The ticketed, family-friendly exhibition showcases a range of animatronic dinosaurs including pterosaurs, triceratops and velociraptors.

Visitors will be asked to vote for their favourite cuddly dino to take out the Best in Show award.

You can vote on any wifi-enabled phone or tablet, by scanning the QR codes in the exhibition and the winner will be announced after the show finishes on Sunday, 13 March 2022.

Newcastle Councillor, Carol Duncan got a sneak peek at the show before it opens to the public tomorrow and said she thinks it will deliver a much-needed dose of fun and frivolity this summer.

“Visitors will be able to immerse themselves in the experience of the Great Baby Dinosaur Show, hearing the life-like dinosaurs roar and watching them move while carefully considering their vote for the ‘Best in Show’,” Cr Duncan said.

Newcastle Museum Director Julie Baird said the Museum was excited to put this special dinosaur show together for the summer school holiday period.

“Dinosaur-themed exhibitions are always very popular with the community, and especially our younger residents, which is why our Museum staff were excited to be involved in curating this show,” Ms Baird said.

“While they’re here, visitors can also check out our other summer exhibition, Oh yeah, I forgot about that: A decade of change seen through the eyes of Mr Trevor Dickinson, Artist, which features more than 20 works by the much-loved Newcastle artist.”

The Great Baby Dinosaur Show opens to the public on 11 December 2021 and will remain on show until 12 March 2022, with tickets available now via the Newcastle Museum website.
