Fourteen life-size dinosaur models will be coming to Albany this school holidays.

The Museum of the Great Southern will play host to a temporary Dinosaur Explore: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous exhibition until Sunday, February 5.

Dinosaurs will be hidden throughout the museum, and children are invited to come and join in the hunt.

Museum-goers who find all of the rascal reptiles will win a prize at the Dinosaur Hunting Trail.

“The arrival of our Dinosaur Explore exhibition has seen our school holiday programs taken over by a wide range of activities dedicated to a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth,” Museum of the Great Southern regional manager Catherine Salmaggi said.

“Our Prehistoric Precinct is a great way to enhance your visit to the Dinosaur Explore exhibition and keep everyone entertained this school holidays.”

Children will also have the opportunity to measure themselves against the leg of a Tyrannosaurus rex to see just how massive the king of the terrible lizards truly was.
