Dippy, the Natural History Museum's iconic Diplodocus cast, is going on a natural history adventure across the UK. His first stop is at the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester.

Dippy will find out about what lived in the seas while he was walking on land in what's now the USA.

There will be lots of Dippy-themed events going on at the Museum and also across Dorset (thanks to our partners the Jurassic Coast Trust) that we’d love you to take part in.

Entry to see Dippy is FREE but you have to book a slot (Max 6 per booking), 60 minutes slots are available. You’ll be able to see Dippy in the Victorian Hall and explore the museum’s temporary exhibition, all un-guided.
