The Dinosaur Museum
The only museum on mainland Britain solely devoted to dinosaurs, the award-winning Dinosaur Museum is a treat, especiallly for children. The musuem combines life-sized reconstructions of dinosaurs with fossils and skeletons to create an exciting hands-on experience. Multimedia displays tell the story of the dinosaurs and their enthraling prehistoric world.
The Dinosaur Museum has twice been voted one of Britains Top Ten Hands On Museums and is a former winner of the Dorset Family Attraction of the Year. It is frequently featured in National Television including Blue peter, The Tweenies and Tickabilla.
'Fleshed-out' dinosaur reconstructions - including T rex, Stegosaurus and Triceratops - beg to be touched by little hands - and that's encouraged. New reconstructions include the 'sickle claw' Deinonychus, two feathered troodons, and a pterosaur. The Dinosaur Museum is part of any Jurassic Coast experience. It's individual and exciting approach has made it extremely popular with visitors.
