Dinosaur Migration Moved South

Dinosaur Migration Moved South

A herd of Dinosaurs have again been on the move, making their way this time to the apt climate of Southern New Zealand's Otago Museum.

Their migration patterns have been tracked for some time now, originating in China from the Beijing Natural History Museum and the Zigong Dinosaur Museum then making their way to the South Pacific, where they briefly settled at the Australian Museum and the Newcastle Museum.

They have now completed their voyage across the Tasman, arriving safely in Dunedin. The ten prehistoric beasts and their supporting fossils are determined to make their presence felt while in town.

On 30 August, after their preparation and rest time, these colossal creatures will have taken over the Otago Museum and will inhabit the building until 2 November.

Thankfully, the Community Trust of Otago and Aurora have made the migration of Chinese Dinosaurs to Dunedin possible. Admission charges apply.

Indemnified by the New Zealand government.

Get ready - for the first time ever a chance to see these amazing REAL DINOSAURS!
