Titanosaur: Life as the Biggest Dinosaur

Step into the world of the colossal titanosaur Patagotitan mayorum, one of the largest known creatures to have ever walked our planet.

  • Open now until 14 January 2024

    Late opening on 24 November, 18.30-20.00

Step into the world of the colossal titanosaur Patagotitan mayorum, one of the largest known creatures to have ever walked our planet.

For the first time ever Patagotitan mayorum will be going on display in Europe. At four times heavier than Dippy the Diplodocus and 12 metres longer than Hope our blue whale, this gigantic creature is a truly spectacular sight! Don't miss your chance to come and see this extraordinary dinosaur up close at our fun, interactive exhibition for all the family.

Surrounded by beautiful illustrations of Cretaceous plants and animals, you'll follow the life of titanosaur, from a football-sized egg plucked from its nest to a fully grown adult, bearing the marks of an encounter with a ferocious predator that took a bite out of its tail.

As you weave your way around the gallery, you'll handle specimens, explore interactives and learn how a creature of this colossal size could have survived, and thrived, on Earth. You'll discover how Patagotitan stayed safe, found food and grew to tower head and shoulders above its fellow Cretaceous critters. Get ready to size yourself up against its huge thigh bone, stare into its gigantic sauropod skull and even see its poo!

After discovering what life was like as the biggest dinosaur, get to know the giants we share our planet with today, learn about their lives, the challenges they face and how we can protect them. 

All ages are welcome, content intended for ages 5+.
