Dinosaurs are a fascination and an inspiration for children. Our hands-on, interactive workshops feature genuine and replica fossils from our museum in Hull. The artefacts include teeth, claws, even a genuine dinosaur egg! Highlight of the presentation is a full size replica Allosaur skull (sharp, scary teeth!) Children are told the exciting stories of the fossils then have the chance to touch and handle the artefacts.
