The Museum's dinosaurs are world famous. Meet the roaring T. rex, see the skull of a Triceratops and wander among fossils in the Dinosaurs gallery.

Explore the different time periods dinosaurs lived, sort the facts from the myths about why they died out, and find out what our scientific research has taught us about these prehistoric giants.

Star specimens and exhibits include:

  • The first fossil ever found from a Tyrannosaurus rex, one of the largest carnivores ever to have walked the Earth
  • An Iguanodon, one of the first species ever described as a dinosaur. Iguanodon teeth were first found by accident in southeast England in 1822 and they inspired the theory that giant reptiles used to live on Earth.
  • The skull of a plant-eating Triceratops
  • One of the largest meat-eaters ever unearthed in Europe, the Baryonyx
  • An Oviraptor egg, a  1C6A ;Daspletosaurus tooth and a Euoplocephalus tail club
