Following his visits to Dorchester, Birmingham, Belfast and Glasgow, the Natural History Museum's famous Dinosaur Dippy has come to Newcastle for a very special exhibition.

Dippy the Diplodocus lived in London for over 100 years but now he's on an adventure around the UK's best family museums.

Unveiled to the British public in 1905, Dippy was cast from the type specimen found in America. The full skeleton is 21.3 metres long, 4.3 metres wide and 4.25 metres high. 

Enjoy a day out with Dippy and get inspired about the natural world!
