The exhibition is open from 10am-5pm daily. Pre-booked tickets are available for timed entry to ensure any queuing for customers is minimised.  

Although timed entry is allocated on an hourly basis this will not prohibit customers from staying longer during quieter periods.  Tickets will also be available on the day at the Kelvin Hall reception desk.

About our Pricing

As with other major exhibitions, hosting ‘T.rex in Town’ is only made possible by generating income through ticket sales. The Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton on display is an incredibly rare and important fossil which is being brought to the UK for the first time solely for this exhibition, and as such it requires special care and conditions. The revenue generated by ticket sales is what allows us to bring exciting exhibitions of this scale and significance to our home town. We have done our best to ensure that tickets are reasonably priced.

There are concessions and family tickets available, as well as separate pricing for school groups.
