Kronosaurus Korner is Australia’s premier marine fossil museum. It has a fascinating collection of prehistoric marine fossils. Krono is one of them a 10 metre giant marine reptile and Wanda is Australia’s largest fossilised fish.
We joined a guided tour run by the curator of the museum. The knowledge that was passed to us was astonishing and fancy seeing these huge creatures in their fossilised skin and down to the bones was just something out of this world setting off the imagination dreaming up landscapes and life forms of a time long ago.
There are also two dinosaurs to have a look at. The whole museum is exciting and it is very well laid out. The art images on the wall hangings really helps you visualise what the Flinders could have looked like them 100 million years ago.
Gary and Barbara Flewelling from Canada were at work as volunteers helping out in the preparation laboratory and they did a show and tell about the steps from excavation to making the fossils ready for display.
You can also do a self guided tour of the museum with hand held audio guides. There is also a DVD presentation to watch which we did not get around to do.
This is a great place to go to if you travel with kids. Kids will love the display and especially have fun at the Krono Kids Korner.
You can also go to Richmond’s free fossil hunting sites and bring back your findings for the museum staff to identify at no extra cost.
