Erth's Prehistoric Aquarium

Ready to meet a plesiosaur? How about getting to know an anomalocaris or come close to a kronosaurus?

Come with us as we take a deep dive millions of years back in time to meet some of the most incredible creatures to ever swim the ocean depths. 

Following on from the internationally-applauded Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo™, The Erth team have gathered together a playful group of prehistoric sea creatures to join their giant aquarium. 

Now, after delighting audiences around the world, this amazing theatre experience is coming to Auckland Museum for a very limited time and you’re invited to take a dip.

Dive in and get up close to these incredible prehistoric sea creatures in a fun, immersive introduction to the fascinating world of palaeontology. Big, and unmistakably ‘alive’, the animals of Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium will delight curious minds from ages 5 years and up.
