Leeds home for NHM dinosaur exhibition

Date Posted: 27/03/2014

School groups visiting Leeds this summer can find out exactly what and how dinosaurs ate, when the Natural History Museum’s exhibition Dino Jaws arrives at New Dock Hall in Leeds on 3rd June.

The exhibition brings together fossil evidence, fun hands-on exhibits, scientific insights and ten lifelike animatronics, with the aim of revealing everything scientists now know about what and how dinosaurs ate.

Using the same techniques that scientists use, visitors to the exhibition can become ‘dino detectives’ and study dinosaur jaws, claws, guts and even a huge mound of poo piled high behind the plant-eating Euoplocephalus animatronic.

James Vincent, managing director of New Dock Hall said: “We are delighted to have secured this popular exhibition which is in great demand. June to September is a peak period and covers all of the long school summer holidays. We look forward to welcoming children and grownups of all ages, to what promises to be a great day out.”

Dino Jaws will run at New Dock Hall from 3rd June to 7th September, and a school group discount will be available.
