Erth's Prehistoric Aquarium

Deep below the surface, submerged below time, swam some of the world’s most amazing prehistoric marine reptiles. Following the internationally loved and applauded show Erth's Dinosaur Zoo™,the team at Erth have spent years scouring the seven seas, collecting playful prehistoric creatures of the deep in their giant aquarium. For the very first time, you are invited to dive in and meet these aquatic critters in person.

What does a Plesiosaurs skin feel like? How big are a Kronosaurus teeth? And do Kimberella even wear shoes? Our skilled handlers will be able to answer all these questions and more in this once in a lifetime interactive theatre experience at Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium.

 Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium invites children to step into the action of the performance; each show performers will invite a small number of carefully selected young divers to join them on their quest to the bottom of the ocean, to ‘swim’ with an amazing array of aquatic creatures from bygone eras.

Connecting young audiences to the real science of palaeontology, Erth’s prehistoric creatures are unmistakably ‘alive’ and mostly friendly, in this fun, educational and unique performance that will delight all audiences from ages 5 years and up.

Come dive with us to the historical depths of the ocean and unlock some of nature’s greatest mysteries. 

Erth's will be holding puppet making workshops on the Empire Theatre Open Day, Sunday 25 June. Click here to register.
