South Australian Museum blockbuster set to thrill visitors.

This Saturday 14 December, the South Australian Museum will open the doors of its Special Exhibitions Gallery and take families into the fascinating, mysterious and bizarre world of the Permian Monsters.

Filled with life-size models that move and roar, beautiful illustrations, fossil dig pits and touch-screen technology, this amazing exhibition offers a hands-on experience of life that roamed the earth before dinosaurs. Life Before Dinosaurs: The Permian Monsters runs until 10 March 2014.

The Museum is pleased to be able to offer a special free pack of Permian species cards to every child who sees the exhibition, which contains an entry form to win tickets to see the 3D movie Walking With Dinosaurs (PG): the ultimate immersive, big screen adventure for families. Meet dinosaurs more real than you’ve ever seen as you take off on a thrilling prehistoric adventure, where Patchi, an underdog dinosaur, triumphs against all odds to become a hero for the ages.

Collect these cards at the South Australian Museum and lodge the entry form in the Museum Shop to win!
