More than doubling initial predictions, Dorset County Museum’s special exhibit Dippy on Tour: A Natural History Adventure has delighted 153,189 visitors in just under three months.
Dressed in Dippy tees and waving green flags, over 250 children from Dorchester schools excitedly gathered in Brewery Square on Friday afternoon to bid farewell to Dippy the Diplodocus. The crowd paraded through the town, following the dinosaur footprints down South Street to Dorset County Museum, where the Natural History Museum’s iconic cast has amazed over 140,000 visitors during his record breaking 12-week stay in Dorset.
It only seems like yesterday that Dorset Country Museum opened its doors to visitors to the iconic ‘Dippy on Tour Exhibition’. Sadly, this record breaking exhibition is coming to an end with just a few days left to make that important final visit.
