Dinosaurs Of China Exhibition: Activities

Dinosaurs of China is an exciting, family friendly exhibition of 26 dinosaur skeletons and fossils coming exclusively to the UK for the summer. Featuring some of the most important dinosaur finds in the world, it will take visitors on a journey through time, explaining how dinosaurs evolved from scaly ground shakers to the birds we see in our gardens today. Did you know that the closest relative to a dinosaur is a chicken?! Many of the exhibits on display have never been seen outside of Asia before and some have only been discovered in the last two years. There are two type specimens (Caudipteryx and Microraptor gui), which are the best known examples of their species anywhere in the world and some impressive skeletons, including the massive Mamenchisaurus, which at 13m tall will be the tallest mounted dinosaur skeleton ever seen in the UK. The event will span two family-friendly sites in Nottingham, both within easy reach of main road and public transport routes around the country. The Grade I listed Elizabethan mansion Wollaton Hall (also known as the setting for Wayne Manor in the 2012 Batman film The Dark Knight Rises) will host the main exhibition . The second exhibition at Nottingham University's public arts centre, Lakeside Arts will welcome the Alxasaurus and the Dilophosaurus which together with the university's own Life Science collection will explore how dinosaurs may have looked. Both locations are in parkland settings making them perfect for a full day out.
