Discover the amazing science of evolution in Triceratops: Fate of the Dinosaurs
Walk through ancient environments, follow the evolutionary path of the dinosaurs and meet Horridus the Triceratops, the most complete and finely preserved Triceratops specimen ever found.
Students will learn about the nature of scientific discovery as they see how palaeontologists have studied and uncovered the complexity of Cretaceous life, how this has formed and refined the theory of evolution, and why this is relevant today.
School groups will be given a short introduction plus a student booklet, connected to curriculum, which can be used in the galleries or back at school.
Bookings for Triceratops: Fate of the Dinosaurs must be made at least three weeks prior to visiting.
