Museum Victoria’s Discovery program is a mobile service that provides access to Museum Victoria’s collections for four-year-old kindergarten groups who may find it difficult to visit one of the museum’s venues.
Dinosaurs have long been the subject of fascination for children; through stories and activities, this program introduces to children the ways in which humans have come to understand dinosaurs through finding and studying fossils.
The children were able to talk about and touch real dinosaur fossils from the Museum Victoria collection, learn about ancient time periods, see life-size replicas of dinosaur skulls, feet and legs, and learn more about meat eaters and plant eaters.
It was an exciting visit that the children thoroughly enjoyed.
