PalaeoGo!!

Our amazing new ‘augmented reality’ app enables you to ‘dig deep’ and answer educational questions on the fossils here at The Etches Collection and unlock virtual dinosaurs and marine reptiles and see them in fantastical 3D through the IPad viewfinder above their fossil bones in our Museum gallery. You can also have a ‘selfie’ taken with your new found prehistoric friends! Suitable for children and adults alike!

PalaeoGo! is a project funded by Bournemouth University (BU) via its Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF) that aims to show how augmented reality (AR) can be used as an educational tool at natural history museums, national parks and in any open space or landscape.

If you’d like to try the app for yourself during your visit to the museum, you can ask to borrow one of our Ipads at the front desk or download the app yourself to your smartphone device.

An fabulous way to engage, understand and learn all about life here at Kimmeridge during Jurassic times!
