Seriously scary – not for the faint-hearted!

Millions of years ago, while dinosaurs ruled the land, giant reptiles more than 20 metres long hunted the depths of the sea – and they’re coming back to life at WA Maritime Museum. Sea Monsters: Prehistoric Ocean Predators brings together real fossils from millions of years ago, gigantic life-sized casts from actual specimens, including a 13-metre long Elasmosaurus and nine-metre Prognathodon, immersive multimedia, and hands-on interactives to raise from the dead these ancient monsters of the deep. The exhibition features over 70 exhibits and includes a huge 1.4-metre Kronosaurus jaw. There is also an incredible ichthyosaur specimen giving birth and a five-metre-long fish that died after swallowing another fish whole.
