More about Dino Encounter……

From the time of their discovery as fossilised remains, dinosaurs have captured the public imagination and fuelled many lifelong obsessions with pre-historic beasts.

This exhibition brings you face to face with lifelike animatronic dinosaur models from the Natural History Museum and reveals how new techniques are helping us understand more about these amazing creatures than ever before.

Find out how modern day experts from Ocean and Earth Science at the University of Southampton are pushing the boundaries of our knowledge: How did giant Pterosaurs fly? How do you find fossils in the Arctic? And are dinosaurs really extinct?

See the powerful jaws on the skull of a Tyrannosaurus Rex up close, have a go at uncovering fossils in our mini dig pit or see how your foot compares to a real dinosaur footprint.

This is an exhibition for families, young children and dinosaur enthusiasts alike!

Dino Encounter, at SeaCity Museum, is part of DINOFEST2015, a Hampshire-wide celebration of prehistoric beasts. From inquisitive young minds to intrepid explorers, there is fun for all the family. Find out more at www.dinofest2015.co.uk
