The Dinosaur Museum is all about having a roaring good time! It's unique devoted solely to dinosaurs and their prehistoric past.

The award winning Dinosaur Museum is a treat, especially for kids. It’s unique devoted solely to dinosaurs with life-sized reconstructions, skeletons and fossils creating a hands-on and interactive experience. The incredible story of the dinosaurs and their fascinating prehistoric world millions of years ago is told. Life-size dinosaur reconstructions include Tyrannosaurus rex, Deinonychus and Triceratops and they beg to be touched by little hands - and that's encouraged!

The hands on displays make discovering about dinosaurs fun. They include the ‘Feely Box’ where you find out what it was like to touch a dinosaur – if you dare; ‘Dinosaurs and You’ where you compare yourself to a dinosaur; plus find out what a dinosaur smelt like with the new ‘Smell a Dinosaur’! Make your own dinosaur discoveries in the Dinosaur Excavation Pit! Take a walk on the prehistoric side in this award-winning museum - it’s packed with fun for kids.

The Dinosaur Museum is situated in the centre of Dorchester, just 8 miles from Dorset’s world famous Jurassic Coast. It’s a great all weather attraction ideal for families with a special discounted Family Ticket. It’s frequently featured on national TV.
