Dinosaur gallery brought back to life

A 165 MILLION-year-old Cetiosaurus (better known as the Rutland Dinosaur) takes centre stage in a new permanent exhibition at New Walk Museum & Art Gallery in Leicester.

‘The Dinosaur Gallery: Exploring Lost Worlds’, which replaces the old dinosaur and geology galleries, also showcases some of the oldest fossils in the world, as featured on Sir David Attenborough’s recent BBC TV series, First Life, a new type of plesiosaur, a sea-going reptile from the Jurassic period and a piece of the Barwell meteorite, which was formed just after the birth of the solar system 4,570 million years ago.
New dinosaur interactives, hands-on activities and cutting edge reconstructions of marine reptiles form part of the experience too. Admission is free.
