About the Exhibition

Natural History Museum logoThis world class exhibition has roaring and moving animatronic dinosaurs of various sizes, including a three-quarter size T.rex. It also includes a 12-metre-long static model of a T. rex and a life-size T. rex skeleton, which will be facing each other across the Cathedral transepts.

This entertaining and engaging exhibition for the entire family enables visitors to look closer at T.rex – its size, the power in its legs, the length of its arms, the sharpness of its teeth and its keen sense of smell. Was it best suited to catching and slaughtering live prey or to stealing carcasses? Read more here
