Wannanosaurus Wednesday Returns

Join us on Wednesday, 5th April, for a fun-filled interactive dinosaur experience when Wannanosaurus Wednesday returns to Merthyr town centre.

But be warned – the incredible model dinosaurs are large and realistic, so there is a mild scare factor taking place!! If your family loves dinosaurs, you won't want to miss this special event! This event is free.
