Tickets are now on sale for ‘Dinosaur Babies’, National Museum Cardiff’s big family friendly blockbuster exhibition this summer. Coming to Wales for the first time, this touring exhibition which is supported by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery provides a rare and exciting look at the life of dinosaurs bringing together some of the world’s most amazing finds of dinosaur eggs and embryos.

Opening on Saturday 27 May 2017, this interactive exhibition which forms part of the Welsh Government’s Year of Legends includes full size dinosaur skeletons and replicas, touchable models of dinosaur embryos and eggs, and even a huge 2.5 metre model dinosaur nest! This is a chance to get up close to the dinosaurs, learn about dinosaur family life, including how they cared for their young babies. Find out more about palaeontologists and their dinosaur discoveries, be a palaeontologist for the day and have a go in our ‘Big Dig Pit’. Or marvel at the two large dinosaur casts of a Tarbosaurus and Probactrosaurus skeleton.

Look out for exciting dinosaur themed family events and activities to complement the exhibition.
