The Queensland Museum of Natural History in Brisbane chose to mark its reopening after renovation with an unusual party. It invited several animatronic dinosaurs.
In the hope of adding some thrill to the celebrations, the scaly hosts however frightened most youngsters.
One parent though says the dinosaurs certainly grabbed her child's attention.
"It's educational and it's fun! She just got to pat a dinosaur!"
In recent months, the museum has undergone a $14-million-dollar renovation, and now houses more than a million exhibits.
