Exhibition highlights:

  • Come face-to-face with the cast of a Baryonyx walkeri skull and see how massive it could grow with backbone specimens found in Surrey.
  • Stand up tall and measure yourself against the femur and tibia of an Iguanodon, one of the first dinosaurs to be discovered.
  • See the complete skeleton of a young Hypsilophodon foxii, discovered on the Isle of Wight.
  • Chomp! How do your teeth compare to Megalosaurus bucklandii teeth found in Oxfordshire? 

Continue your adventure around the Museum

  • What are the biggest and smallest birds you can find?
  • What differences can you spot between the feathers of flying and non-flying birds?
  • Iguanodon teeth are similar to those of an iguana. Can you find the iguana skeleton?
  • You can touch reptile skin in Gallery 6. Do you think this is how dinosaur skin would have felt?
