Boonstra Diarama

When the iconic Boonstra Diorama exhibition opened in 1959, it was the first of its kind in South Africa to showcase the 270-million-year-old fossil discoveries of the Karoo in a relatable way to visitors. This exhibition was more than just edu-tainment; it inspired a generation of scientists to uncover more fossils and add to the building blocks of knowledge. But science moves on, and space is needed to highlight the recent discoveries that keep museum spaces relevant and accurate.

Now, thanks to an ambitious digital preservation project made possible through a collaboration with Zamani Project, the dioramas are accessible online. Join the virtual tour with Karoo Palaeontology Curator and Research Scientist Claire Browning to learn more about the dioramas and how you can now explore them in a virtual space.
