Dinosaur hunters of all ages can now take part in a new augmented reality trail at Auckland Museum. Use your phone to scan the codes to reveal lifelike AR prehistoric creatures - from T. rex and velociraptors to sea monsters and flying giants, right there in the galleries.
The first codes are waiting for you just inside Te Ao Mārama South Atrium and there are more dotted around the Museum galleries. Once you’ve located the dinos you can have your photo or a video taken with them to share with your friends.
Do you hear the pitter-patter of little tyrannosaurus feet? Keep an eye out for QR code stands around the Museum and scan to hatch a baby T. rex.
We have a host of prehistoric visitors scattered throughout the Museum - will you find them all?
The AR Dinosaur Hunt requires the use of your own mobile device.
