Dinosaur rEvolution: Secrets of Survival

Horns, spikes, quills and feathers. The secret is in the skin!


Journey back 100 million years to a time when fearsome beasts stalked the earth!

This summer, TMAG’s galleries will be transformed into an amazing exhibition exploring the ancient world of the dinosaurs.

Get up close and personal with life-sized animatronic models, learn about the amazing creatures recently discovered in the icy Antarctic, and even uncover Tasmania’s fascinating dinosaur links.

How did dinosaurs evolve? What were their secrets of survival? And do they still exist today?


This is a fee-paying exhibition due to the significant costs involved in presenting such an ambitious program. We are delighted to welcome our visitors to this special event as part of the Royal Society of Tasmania’s 175th anniversary.

Opening hours:

10:00 am – 4:00 pm daily (26 December – 31 March)

10:00 am – 4:00 pm Tuesday – Sunday (1 April – 24 December)

10:00 am – 4:00 pm Tasmanian public holiday Mondays year-round

Closed Good Friday (Fri 19 April 2019), Anzac Day (25 April) and Christmas Day

Presented by the Royal Society of Tasmania and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery
