When dinosaurs ruled the land, giant marine reptiles hunted the depths of the sea. 

Direct from the Australian National Maritime Museum, we’re thrilled to bring you Sea Monsters, the incredible exhibition of over 70 displays featuring prehistoric ocean predators. You’ll see real fossils from millions of years ago, along with gigantic replicas including a 13-metre long Elasmosaur and 9-metre long Prognathodon. With an immersive video projection and over a dozen hands-on interactives, there’s plenty to see and do. 

What can fossilised bones tell us about how these prehistoric ocean predators lived? How do they compare to today’s top ocean predators? Soon you'll be able to discover the secrets of these monsters of the deep in this new exhibition that will delight all ages!
