Dinosaurs: An Exhibit at Base31

Dinosaurs: An Exhibit at Base31

This weekend marks your final opportunity to witness the magnificent Dinosaurs!

For one month only on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Base31 ventures back in time to visit the magnificent giants that formerly roamed the land. Take in the enormity of prehistoric dinosaur fossils in The Drill Hall.

Presented in partnership with Research Casting International, internationally recognized creators and experts in the art and science of recreating the past, the Drill Hall comes alive with seven true-to-size casts of genuine dinosaur fossils, including an 80ft long Diplodocus skeleton and a number of other curious dinosaur fossils and activities.

As ticketed guests, you'll have the opportunity to wander through lifesize exhibits, snap incredible photos with the magnificent dinosaur fossils, and engage in a range of exciting dinosaur-themed activities. Information plaques accompany each fossil, providing an educational aspect to your journey for those eager to learn more.

Guided Tour Option: Looking for a personalized, curated experience? Buy tickets for one of three available Dinosaurs: Guided Tours each morning on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays. For an added fee, starting at 10 am, take a 45-minute guided tour with one of the RCI Casting Specialists through the exhibit and get exclusive access to some of the fascinating stories of how the fossils are cast, some of the exciting projects their team have been a part of and more. Tours depart every hour on the hour at 10am, 11am and noon. Limited slots available for each tour – reserve your tickets here.

Final entry into the Dinosaur Exhibit is at 3:15pm. Tickets (if available) will be sold at the door until 3:15pm at box office, allowing last-minute ticket purchasers the chance to enjoy the full exhibit before doors close at 4pm.
