From the mighty T-Rex to freshly hatched baby-saurs, it’s an event that’ll go down in pre-history. Just watch out... things could get a bit lively!

WHAT’S ON

REXY
Friday 6th July – Sunday 12th August

Meet REXY, the full-size T-Rex skeleton who you might recognise from the hit movie, Night at the Museum. You’ll love the bones of him! Watch as our Museum guard brings Rexy to life each Friday and Saturday (see times below).

TEEN REX
Friday 6th July – Saturday 21st July
