Please note: The southern and northern ends of the Dinosaur Gallery are currently closed for renovations. These are expected to re-open in September 2018. The Dinosaur Tour will now visit different galleries as it reveals incredible details about the world of the dinosaurs. Starting out in the central area of the Dinosaur Gallery guests will come face-to-face with the giant plant-eater Jobaria Tiguidensis, as well as some carnivorous dinosaurs, followed by a visit to the bird galleries and more!

Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance do I have to book a party?
We generally require three weeks notice but can run parties with less notice e.g. 7 days notice provided we can organise the external catering  and staff to run it.

How many kids can we invite?
We have a minimum of 15 kids and a maximum of 20.

How do I book extra tickets?
Once you have booked your initial package we create an individual event via eventbrite and send you the link to purchase your extra tickets.

Do you supply a cake?
No, you must bring your own cake. We provide knife, candles, lighter plates, napkins etc.

Do we need to bring our own decorations?
We set up the room with dinosaur posters and table cloths. You are welcome to bring additional decorations if desired but this is not necessary. The Musuem does not allow helium balloons.
