The exhibition arrives in Leeds later this month direct from Hong Kong’s Science Museum, where it was seen by over 750,000 visitors. In 2013 it was also resident in San Diego Natural History Museum and following NEW DOCK Hall it transfers to The Hague, Netherlands. It is the exhibition's first time back in the UK since it was exhibited in Birmingham in summer 2011
Hugely popular during its time at the Natural History Museum and on its world tour, the exhibition explores what dinosaurs ate, featuring 10 animatronic dinosaurs, including a three quarter life size T-Rex. Using the same techniques that scientists use, visitors are encouraged to study dinosaur jaws, claws, guts and even a huge mound of poo piled high behind the plant-eating Euoplocephalus animatronic, to discover what dinosaurs ate.
James Vincent, Managing Director of NEW DOCK Hall comments: “We’re delighted to be bringing this hugely popular Natural History Museum branded exhibition to NEW DOCK Hall, Leeds for the whole of the summer season. To be included in the exhibition’s world tour along with some the world’s best science and history museums is a great accolade.” The exhibition will be open daily from the 3 June - 7 September 2014, 10am - 6pm.
