ABOUT US

 

Discover the majesty and magnificence of the largest animal ever to walk the earth. TITANOSAUR journeys to the southern hemisphere during the Late Cretaceous to explore the life history and environment of these long-necked sauropods – from egg to towering titan.

 

Vivid and scientifically-accurate computer animation brings the prehistoric world of the titanosaur back to life in this touching and family-friendly celebration of the world’s most colossal plant-eater.

Dinosaurs Alive is a global adventure of science and discovery – featuring the earliest dinosaurs of the Triassic Period to the monsters of the Cretaceous.

Audiences will journey with some of the world’s preeminent paleontologists as they uncover evidence that the descendents of dinosaurs still walk (or fly) among us.  Through the magic of scientifically accurate computer-generated animation, these newly discovered creatures, and some familiar favorites, will come alive…in a big way!

 

Accessibility

 

Parking

There are several car parks available right in front of the museum.

Wheelchair Access

There are 3 steps to climb to access the museum which has displays and exhibits situated over two floors.

We have a temporary wheelchair ramp available at the front door to assist with the entrance.

The ground floor is fully accessible. We regret that the upper floor is inaccessible to wheelchair users because of the nature of this period building. It can only be accessed by a staircase of 22 steps.

Therefore if any visitor is unable to access the second floor they will only pay half the admittance price.

 

Displays

Showcases and displays are focused at a lower level where possible to ensure that they can be viewed and experienced by all.

 

Toilets

There are no disabled toilets in the museum. The nearest disabled toilets are straight across the road just a few metres from the museum.

Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs are welcome throughout the museum at all times. 

 
 

The Dinosaur House is a small museum which is run by dinosaur enthusiasts Ian & Sarah Moore and their children. The museum contains an amazing collection of dinosaur displays and fossils.
