Something BIG is coming…
Opens Boxing Day - 26.12.2018
Step back in time 290 million years when bizarre-looking animals dominated life on land and sea, and find out about the greatest extinction the world has ever seen in Life Before Dinosaurs: Permian Monsters. This exhibition brings the past back to life with fossilised skeletons and full-size animatronic models of monsters that ruled the world long before the age of dinosaurs, in a time known as the Permian.
See giant insects, bizarre looking sharks and strange reptiles with mammal-like characteristics and meet the top predator of the time, the giant saber toothed Gorgonopsid Inostrancevia. This is the Summer Exhibition not to be missed!
