Exhibition: Titanosaur at the Natural History Museum

Location

Natural History Museum,

Cromwell Road, London,
SW7 5BD

Dates

This exhibition CLOSED on Sun, 7th Jan 2024

Cost: £16

Description

Four times heavier than Dippy the Diplodocus, 12 metres longer than Hope the blue whale and making its European debut, prepare to meet titanosaur and learn all about life as the biggest dinosaur. Patagotitan mayorum, the most complete gigantic dinosaur ever discovered.

A showstopper exhibition that needs to be seen to be believed, barely fitting inside the enormous 9-metre-high Waterhouse gallery, the sheer scale of this prehistoric beast is enough to dwarf even the tallest of humans.


Visitors can weave their way around the gallery handling specimens, exploring interactives and learning how a creature of this colossal size could have survived, and thrived, on Earth. See how you size up next to a titanosaur femur bone, look between the eyes of a gigantic sauropod skull, and get close enough to smell dinosaur poo!

Surrounded by beautiful artistic illustrations depicting flora and fauna of the Cretaceous Period, visitors will track the life of a titanosaur – from the football-sized egg plucked from its nest to evidence of a fearsome predator that took a bite out of its tail – before considering what gigantic animals exist on Earth today, and how we can better protect them throughout the planetary emergency.
