Calling all Jurassic Park and Jurassic World fans — for more than six months at Queensland Museum in 2023, life is finding a way to bring you face to face with the largest-known land animal ever. The South Bank site is hosting Dinosaurs of Patagonia, which is filled with fossils from South America spanning 13 dino species. If you're a lover of David Attenborough's Prehistoric Planet, too, you'll be in your element.

Even better — within this giant blast from the past, it's time for a night at the museum. It's time for several, actually. You won't find Ben Stiller roaming the halls here; however, QM is pairing its dinosaur exhibition with drinks.

Clearly, these after-hours evenings will still feel rather adventurous — and, if you're interested in dinos, as we all are, dazzling as well. Queensland Museum has held these types of events before for past exhibitions, and just in general, with Dinosaurs of Patagonia After Dark taking place from 5.30pm on Saturday, March 18, Friday, May 5, Friday, July 28 and Friday, September 29.

At this completely adults-only affair, you'll walk, talk, drink take a tour of the exhibition and party while surrounded by all those prehistoric beasts. There'll be live tunes, too, a palaeontologist answering questions and dinosaur origami to make.

Plus, the rest of QM will be open as well, so expect to check out SparkLab and Sciencentre's wonders, and even meet native wombats, crocodiles and birds.

A word of warning: these shindigs often sell out, so, you'll want to nab a $40 ticket quickly (and note that that price doesn't include food and drinks).
