Earth's oceans have been home to some of the largest, fiercest and most successful predators ever to exist.

Visitors will discover the remarkable evolution and ecosystems of these great underwater creatures. They will step back in time to experience life beneath the waves and come face-to-face with ferocious hunters and their prey, as they were millions of years ago during the Jurassic period.

Striking specimens, including fully articulated 3D models and life-size casts from the Natural History Museum's collections, will show the predators of the Jurassic seas in their natural habitats and tell the story  of how they adapted to survive. The exhibition is an immersive experience, displaying dramatic CGI, 3D printed objects, artificial skins and interactive elements.
