Step back in time to the Cretaceous period and meet Trix, the first Tyrannosaurus rex to go on display in Europe. 

The 66-million-year-old fossil of the carnivorous dinosaur was found in Montana, USA  in 2013 and is the centrepiece of this major exhibition supplied by Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden, Netherlands. Trix is the only original skeleton of a T. rex currently touring anywhere in the world and one of the three most complete Tyrannosaurus rex skeletons in the world.


As well as having an opportunity to see one of the Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton you can learn more about how dinosaurs lived through amazing interactive displays.  Find out more about Trix’s turbulent life from the information revealed by her bones, based on recent findings by an international research team of palaeontologists and geologists and look out for our events programme which will run throughout the exhibition period. 

A bespoke retail offer for the exhibition is open 7 days a week, stocking an array of items suitable for Dino fans, young and old.

After the exhibition relax in our Dino-themed catering space with delicious street food offering from the Big Feed.

We are expecting this event to be busy so please book tickets in advance if possible. Pre-booked tickets are available for timed entry slots to ensure any queuing for customers is minimised.   Book here

Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to come face to face with a T. Rex!
