Saturday 13 July - Sunday 8 September 2024 (Closed Mondays and bank holidays)

This summer, come face to face with the dinosaurs that used to roam the UK, from harmless herbivores to terrifying tyrannosaurs; from the smallest to the largest. Come and see giant dinosaur skeletons, touch real fossil bones and see stunning original fossils from 150 million years ago. Find out about the fossils from our own backyard, and the crucial role they played in the discovery of dinosaurs. See those earliest finds which gave rise to dinosaurs as we know them, all the way to the most recent and exciting dinosaur discoveries from the UK.

From teeth to tail bones, jaws and claws, food to fossilised poo, and giant skeletons, encounter real fossil bones from 100 million years ago, and find out who ate whom!

Enjoy the dinosaur discovery camp complete with shelter and campfire, a quiet space to read up on all your favourite dinosaurs and get hands-on at the Dino Activity Station.

A full programme of dino-related events and activities will be running through the summer holidays. Visit the website for more information: DINOSAURS ON THE DOORSTEP - Museums Worcestershire.
