Dippy on Tour: A Natural History Adventure

Following visits to Dorchester, Birmingham, Belfast and Glasgow, the Natural History Museum's iconic Diplodocus cast Dippy is coming to Newcastle upon Tyne's Great North Museum. Dippy lived in London for over 100 years but now he's on an adventure around the UK to inspire families about biodiversity and the wonders of the natural world. The Diplodocus was cast from the type specimen found in America and unveiled to the British public in 1905. The full skeleton is 21.3 metres long, 4.3 metres wide and 4.25 metres high. Dippy on Tour: A Natural History Adventure has been organised by the Natural History Museum in partnership with the Garfield Weston Foundation.
