That said, the exhibition is really aimed at children age 6 plus through to adults. The technology and work behind the world premiere event at Melbourne Museum, is so advanced, that little kids may fright. Jurassic Creatures: Prehistoric Creatures of the Ice at Harbour Town in Docklands on the other-hand, is great for young children because the additional activities are aimed at little dino fans.
Jurassic Creatures is a 2 ½ hour interactive walk through event. The exhibition is positioned in a big tent in the heart of Docklands, near to Melbourne Star. See a display of pre-historic creatures such as the colossal Mammoths, fearsome Saber Tooth Tigers and everyone’s favourite the Tyrannosaurus Rex. Little ones can pose for a picture inside a dinosaur egg or ride on top of a model baby Triceratops.
What really captures the interest of little ones, is the interative activities such fossil digging, sand play, dino themed games, a huge jumping castle and a live show featuring Buddy & Tiny from the Dinosaur Train.
