The Dinosaur Gallery - Exploring Lost Worlds
The Rutland Dinosaur is back!
The Dinosaur, a Cetiosaurus, is taking centre stage in the new exhibition that shows extinct animals were not ‘prehistoric monsters’ but living and breathing creatures. Discover what life was like millions of years ago and see how the world and the living things on it change constantly over time. Explore lost worlds and find out how dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals lived.
Alongside the Rutland Dinosaur you be able to see some of the oldest fossils in the world, as featured on Sir David Attenborough's recent series, First Life. The displays will also feature a new kind of Jurassic marine reptile and a piece of the Barwell meteorite, which was formed just after the birth of the solar system 4570 million years ago.
Suitable for all ages, the gallery includes new dinosaur interactives, hands-on activities and cutting edge reconstructions of marine reptiles.
The Dinosaur Gallery: Exploring Lost Worlds has received funding from the DCMS/Wolfson Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund, The City of Leicester Museums Trust, Renaissance East Midlands and Find Your Talent..
