Paleontology is a branch of science that focuses on prehistoric life, especially fossils! Did you know that fossils are not actually the remains of an organism, but an imprint of the remains of the animal or plant in rock?

Visit us at the CTSC every Saturday for some amazing science workshops and demonstrations that will celebrate the geological past! We will also have an exciting excavation site for future palaeontologists to find skeletons of the past.

OPENING HOURS*: Monday – Saturday, 09:00 – 16:30
*Kindly note that the CTSC is closed on Sundays.
