Senckenberg Museums launch Dino Easter Egg Hunt


What about combining two things that young people particularly like at Easter: looking for Easter eggs and taking selfies! This possibility is available in a particularly original way at the Senckenberg Museum. Because there, the dinosaur Diplodocus longus has hidden three eggs in original size in each of the Senckenberg Museums in Dresden, Frankfurt and Görlitz as well as at its current location on the banks of the Spree in Berlin over Easter. Anyone who finds them can take a selfie and then post it on social media under the hashtag #DinoaufReisen. Senckenberg will be giving away 40 free family tickets to the three museums from all entries.

The promotion starts on Easter Saturday, 15 April and ends on 23 April 2017, as part of the journey through Germany of the dinosaur Diplodocus longus, the Senckenberg landmark and ambassador for the "Senckenberg 2020 - New Museum Project". The 28-meter-long and seven-meter-high long-necked dinosaur is touring Germany to promote the renovation and new construction of the Frankfurt museum. Since 17 March, the life-size dinosaur has been making a stop in Alt-Moabit in Berlin. Here, too, he has hidden three replica dinosaur Easter eggs.

As part of the "Senckenberg 2020 - New Museum Project", the museum's floor space is to be increased from around 6,000 square metres today to 10,000 square metres. Four new exhibition areas will be created in the process: Man, Earth, Cosmos and Future. This will require a sum of around 56 million euros. Numerous companies have agreed to participate in the project. And many private individuals have already donated as well. The dinosaur's tour of Germany is now intended to reach out to supporters nationwide. In March of last year, he left his usual spot in front of the Senckenberg Natural History Museum and is now drawing attention to the fundraising campaign throughout Germany. After stops at Frankfurt's Commerzbank Tower, THE SQUAIRE at Frankfurt Airport and Hamburg Eppendorf, the colossus has now moved to Berlin. His journey is made possible by the office real estate group OFFICEFIRST.
