Dinosaur Encounter, proudly supported by City Partner Fly Palmy, brings your favourite prehistoric beasts out of time and puts them in a modern New Zealand urban environment.

The gallery will be transformed into a familiar ‘urban jungle’ through which our mighty guests will rampage, while reproductions of skeletons, skulls and fossil remains will add breadth to the experience

Developed by the London Natural History Museum, Dinosaur Encounter features nine moving dinosaur models brought to life by state-of-the-art animatronics and will give visitors a thrilling glimpse at the "terrible lizards" of seventy million years ago. Designers and scientists worked closely together to create an unprecedented level of realism.

Get ready to meet them in person, when they arrive in the Southern Hemisphere for the very first time!
