Dinosaur rEvolution Secrets of Survival

Dinosaurs ruled the world for 169 million years and vanished 65 million years ago – but did they all go extinct?

Fossils found in China with skin and soft tissue, and even feathers and quills, provide evidence that birds were the last branch in the dinosaur family tree. They revealed secrets of an evolutionary arms-race: and only the smallest dinosaurs would fly away to survive extinction!

Come and see their fascinating skeletons, run your hands over fossil casts including a nest of dinosaur eggs, and unearth fossils from dig pits. Discover whether T. Rex really did have brown scales!

Three animatronic dinosaurs will sense you approach. Hear them roar and watch them move, but don’t worry, they won’t bite.
