Exhibition – Walking with Dinosaurs at Thinktank, Birmingham (to 31 August)


Thinktank is set to go prehistoric with a major Walking with Dinosaurs Exhibition from 2 May 2009.

Dinosaurs last roamed our planet 65 million years ago and BBC’s Walking with Dinosaurs brought these remarkable creatures ‘back to life’.

This exhibition explores the science and technology behind the award-winning TV series and will allow Thinktank visitors to walk with dinosaurs.

At weekends and school holidays, there will also be a variety of dinosaur themed workshops, storytelling and science shows for visitors of all ages.

Full-sized dinosaur replicas have been especially created for the exhibition so visitors can see these prehistoric wonders up close.  The exhibition will feature some spectacular models, including a six metre long Plateosaur skeleton, a T-Rex skull, a huge Triceratops skull, real fossils that are over a 100 million years old – and a seven metre long replica of the UK’s largest carnivorous dinosaur – Megalosaurus.

Daily 10.00am – 5.00pm
2 May 2009 to 31 August 2009
