Step back in time nearly 300 million years when bizarre-looking animals dominated life on land and sea. Learn about the greatest extinction the world has ever seen.
This unique exhibition brings the past back to life with fossilized skeletons and full-size life models of the animals that ruled the world millions of years before the age of dinosaurs, in a time known as the Permian.
The exhibition blends art and science with artwork offering a glimpse back in time through the eyes of award-winning paleo-artist Julius Csotonyi.
Permian Monsters showcases an amazing collection of fossils and models from this relatively unknown period.
View fossilized skeletons and reconstructed models of amazing creatures that dominated land and sea. Meet the top predator, the largest sabertoothed creature of all time.
The Permian Period ended with the extinction of 80% of all species. Find out how a huge volcanic eruption set off a chain of events that led to the greatest extinction of all time to make way for Earth’s next rulers: The Dinosaurs!
