Dinosaurs in York? Yes it's true
York has always been a pretty popular place to visit but now we even have dinosaurs in the city. Until the end of March 2020, you can visit the Yorkshire Museum in the city centre and travel through time 150 million years to discover these long lost giants and the changing world they inhabited.

This new exhibition is popular for both children and adults. You'll be able to explore everything from the deepest seas and ancient coasts, to the tropical shallows.

Come face to face with the dinosaurs and sea monsters that once roamed this vast and ever-changing landscape. Each Jurassic world is displayed and ready to be explored as the colossal creatures and their surroundings are brought to life using the latest research and ground-breaking technology.

And for something different you can even get to view the smallest details of an ichthyosaur as its flesh and skin are superimposed over its preserved skeleton. Or why not serve a sauropod dinosaur its supper as the VR headset reincarnates the oldest sauropod remains ever found in the UK

Other displays include the terrifying megalosaur's tooth and even a dinosaur called 'Alan'! This dinosaur is proof that some of the largest ones that roamed the earth once lived in what is now called Yorkshire. Alan, was actually named after the finder of a huge vertebra from the oldest true sauropod dinosaur ever found in the UK
