Brick Dinos

February 4th 2017 to June 4th 2017 temporary Exhibition

Step back in time with Brick Dinos!

Enter the Jurassic period like never before and meet the dinosaurs face to face, each one masterfully built using LEGO® bricks.

Working in collaboration with a palaeontologist, artist Warren Elsmore and his team have painstakingly recreated some of the largest beasts to ever walk this earth in miniature LEGO® form!

Come face to face with dinosaurs from the air, sea and land and even compare yourself to those that roamed the Earth millions of years ago.

Discover if your whole family would fit into the footprint of a single dinosaur.

Then why not try building your own dinosaur from LEGO® bricks to add to our Jurassic landscape.

Enjoy an Early Bird Quiet Visit to BRICK DINOS

Early Birds Quiet Visits enables families with children who have an Autism Spectrum Condition to come along and enjoy our Brick Dinos Exhibition without the hustle and bustle of the general public.

Taking place on the last Sunday of each month (February – May 2017), BRICK DINOS will open its doors at 9.00am and remain available exclusively to pre-booked visitors until 10.00am to allow families the opportunity to fully explore the exhibition and its interactives. Staff will alert families a few minutes before the exhibition opens to the general public at 10.00am, at which point all are welcome to stay and explore the rest of the museum site for free.

Anyone can come along, but we do ask that everyone respects the need for some people to have a quieter experience and these early sessions have been designed for children affected by autism that make the normal noise of the museum challenging.

Advance booking for these sessions is essential. Normal exhibition admission charges apply. 

Please telephone 01670 624455 or email   to book or if you have any queries or special requirements.
