The museum is also famous for the earthquake machine, which shows the staggering effects of an earthquake. The Darwin centre houses millions of preserved specimens and an 8 metre long giant squid. There is a gigantic super crocodile’s skull on display which is about 71 – 83 million years old. In the Green Zone of the museum is the bones of a Megatherium (aka giant sloth).
