Dinosaurs of Patagonia

Date: Thursday 04 April 2024

Venue: Te Papa Museum , Wellington Central

Restrictions: All Ages

Some of the most important dinosaur discoveries of our time will be on display at Te Papa from December 2023. The New Zealand exclusive exhibition includes fossils and casts of bones discovered in Patagonia in South America. You’ll see one of the biggest dinosaur bones on the planet, a 2.4-metre-long, half-ton thigh bone from the Patagotitan.

Te Papa palaeontologist Dr Felix Marx, who has himself discovered several extinct species, says the exhibition is an extraordinary opportunity for New Zealanders. “The sheer scale of these animals is mind-blowing, and they give us incredible new insights into dinosaur evolution.”
