One of our interesting stops during the summer school holidays was the Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum. A great spot to take the kids (adult and child like). The museum houses the Somerville Collection, containing a 10m TRex skeleton. This dino skeleton is not an adult hence it could be housed in the restored 1876 Public School building. There is a wonderful shop that of course manages to capture the eyes of little people even more than the collection. Luckily our kids are that bit older -the tantrums following the word "no" have subsided and we can walk through the shop with our heads held high. We managed to not buy anything this time. Check it out. The minerals, gems, amber, fossils and staff are wonderful.
