Dippy on Tour

  In partnership with
    Supported by

The Natural History Museum’s famous Diplodocus skeleton cast, known as Dippy is touring the UK from early 2018. And we’re thrilled to have been selected from hot competition as his first stop on that tour!

Dippy the dinosaur, has delighted visitors since he arrived at London's Natural History Museum in 1905. Now the Natural History Museum in partnership with the Garfield Weston Foundation and is supported by DELL EMC and Williams and Hill, are touring Dippy around the country to spark the imagination of the next generation of scientists and connect the nation with nature.

Dippy at Night

Coming to see Dippy in the evening will be a unique opportunity to see him lit in the Victorian Hall, so advanced booking is strongly advised as we expect this to be a popular. 

There is an admission charge to see Dippy after dark in the Victorian Hall and explore the museum in the evening, all un-guided.

Members of Dorset Natural History and Archaeological Society and Go Jurassic! Rangers entry to the whole museum during Dippy on Tour, including Dippy, is FREE and you do not have to book a time slot, simply turn up with your membership ID.

Dorset County Museum and the Jurassic Coast are planning an extensive events programme to accompany Dippy on Tour, visit
