Sea Monsters: Prehistoric Ocean Predators
The Australian National Maritime Museum’s latest exhibition is enough to give Jaws nightmares. Millions of years ago while dinosaurs ruled the land, giant reptiles over 20 metres long hunted the depths of the sea – and they’re coming back to life this summer at the Maritime Museum.
For young and old – Sea Monsters: Prehistoric Ocean Predators opens to the public on Thursday 26 September and brings together never-before-seen real fossils from millions of years ago, gigantic life-sized casts from real specimens, including a 13m long Elasmosaurus and 9m Prognathdon, immersive multimedia, and hands on interactives to raise from the dead these ancient monsters of the deep.
The exhibition will be the first time a huge 1.4 metre Kronosaurus jaw has been on public display, and joins incredible specimens such as an ichthyosaur giving birth and a 5 metre long fish that died after swallowing another fish whole.
This event is not for the faint hearted!
When: 26 September 2019 – 27 April 2020, 9:30am – 5pm daily.
