This April World Museum Liverpool invites you to become a dinosaur explorer in their Dino Ranger Day.
Live out your long lost palaeontologist dream by being a Dino Ranger for the day! Surely the best thing about having kids is getting involved with events like this?!
The whole family will get to meet Jam the pet T-Rex. There will be interactive performances, where you’ll discover how the theories surrounding these mysterious beasts have evolved over time. You can have your photo taken with Jam and meet the museum’s resident expert Dino Dave. They’ll also be some dinosaur crafts to get your creative juices flowing.
If you’ve not visited World Museum Liverpool before prepare for a full on sensory experience! It’s unashamedly family focused and boasts treasures from around the world, the bottom of the ocean and even outer space. If space is your thing then be sure to check out their Planetarium Shows, aimed at different age groups, in the museum’s full dome planetarium.
Once you’ve explored the realms of outer space, why not take a journey back through time 5,000 years in the museum’s Ancient Egypt gallery? This is the place to go for those fascinated by all things Egyptian. The museum has the largest Ancient Egypt gallery (1000 square metres) in the UK outside of the British Museum. You’ll learn what life was like for ordinary ancient Egyptians (not just the Kings and Queens!) and explore the Mummy Room to find out how people achieved eternal life.
With dinosaurs, space and Ancient Egypt all covered we think you might need to plan more than one visit to World Museum Liverpool.
