Tyrannosaurs: Ultimate Predators exhibition (finished)

Did you know that Tyrannosaurus rex is only one of a group of dinosaurs called tyrannosaurs? To be completely honest, I didn’t really know much about dinosaurs in general until we visited SEEN@Swansea today. As soon as you enter the building and look up, you’ll see a giant tyrannosaurs head with huge teeth and intelligent eyes right at the entrance. Does this instantly give you an uneasy feeling about how intimidating this dinosaur once was? Yes, it does.

This exhibition gave us an amazing insight into this prehistoric creature that dominated the dinosaur era. Michael, the exhibitor, was a wealth of knowledge on this king of the dinos. We learned about their food source, teeth production, poop (my son was happy), and their body’s amazing ability to repair and fuse in order to stay alive.


Getting to SEEN@Swansea

On the Pacific Hwy Swansea in the new building next to McDonald’s, you’ll find the Swansea Centre. This is where the exhibition is. The address is 228 Pacific Hwy, Swansea. You’ll also find plenty of parking out the back in their car park so head to Wood Street. You can enter the centre from the back, and then you’ll find SEEN@Swansea on the 2nd level.

The exhibition is open daily from 10 am-3 pm and a gold coin donation is greatly appreciated.


The Tyrannosaurs: Ultimate Predator exhibition

The T-REX was a magnificent creature, and it’s incredible we’ve been able to learn so much about them. Did you know that the Tyrannosaurus rex probably didn’t roar? Have you ever wondered why the T-REX had such tiny arms? What did tyrannosaurs eat? Did tyrannosaurs poop? Did tyrannosaurs get hurt? You’ll find answers to these questions and many more at this exhibition, especially if you get a chance to chat with Michael.

We really did enjoy this awesome display of T-REX and are very grateful to have been able to immerse ourselves in their world. The kids were given these cool activity packs to take home at the end of our visit. Such a great little morning out and definitely one we recommend these school holidays.
