Dinosarus in Time

Melbourne Museum, Melbourne

Dinosaurs in Time was an exhibition about the history of life on earth at the Melbourne Museum. It covered the past 3500 million years of life on our planet, from ancient microfossils to trilobites, dinosaurs, mammals and plants, and presents the fossil record as evidence for evolution.

An ascending curved exhibition wall represents a timeline of life from 4.5 billion years ago to 2 million years ago. Openings within this wall contain smaller spaces through which the visitor can enter. These spaces focus on fundamental stages in evolution through the display of fossils, both within showcases and on open display, and via graphics, soundscapes and multimedia. A large-format moving projection onto the massive curved gallery wall representing the concept of time provides a constant backdrop to the more detailed exhibits.
