Meet monsters from 252 million years ago in a period called the Permian, when you visit this fascinating, family-friendly exhibition.

252 million years ago life on Earth was dominated by extraordinary creatures – Permian monsters.

It was a time of fearsome sabre-toothed predators, giant insects and bizarre-looking sharks.

The Permian ended with a mass extinction that destroyed 90% of all life, paving the way for Earth’s next great rulers… the dinosaurs.

In this fascinating, family-friendly exhibition, which is travelling to the UK for the first time, you can discover more about this mysterious time period.

On display will be fossil skeletons as well as full-size models and animatronics that bring the Permian back to life.

Unfortunately, touch interactive areas have been removed or covered due to the pandemic.
