The Winny Show
What does dinosaur snot look like? How does dinosaur poo smell?

Forget the beach and go prehistoric this summer with a fun dinosaur show and two exciting new exhibitions at the Australian Museum.

For great family value, you can’t miss The Dinosaur Experience. Come face to face with the Museum’s very own Muttaburrasaurus dinosaur, Winny, in this special 45 minute show for all ages.

Winny hatched from an egg four years ago and since then, has made the Museum her home with keepers to feed and care for her when she’s not performing – and when she’s not chatting with one of her 1200 friends on Facebook!

Get up close and very personal with Winny in this interactive show which gives kids the chance to see her snot, sniff her poo and discover what she likes to eat – will it be plants, hot dogs or maybe even small children?!!

 The Dinosaur Experience

Learn all about Winny’s busy life at the was like for Australian dinosaurs that lived millions of years ago. The show includes the chance to ask curly questions and to have photos taken with Winny.

There are shows at 11.00am and 12.30pm daily from 2 – 26 January 2012. Shows are $5 per person after general Museum entry.

Budding palaeontologists can complete their museum expedition with a visit to the Dinosaurs Exhibition where they can touch 100 million year old dinosaur fossils and practice digging for bones.

The fossil touch table and dig pit will be open from 10.00am – 11.00am and 2.00pm – 3.00pm daily throughout the school holidays.
