From this weekend children and families will have the chance to dive into Bristol’s Jurassic sea, travel back in time 150 million years and come face to face with a real life 8 metre long Pliosaurus!
The Pliosaurus – aka Doris – was discovered in Westbury, Wiltshire in 1994 and her fossil is one of the world’s most complete. This will be the first time she has been on public display.
Children and families will be able to touch her skin, listen to her heartbeat and smell her disgusting breath! They can also learn more about Doris by playing games to discover more about her life and death.
Doris will be at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery from Saturday 17th June until 7th January 2018 and would be ideal for children aged 3 – 11 to see.
Payment will be on a ‘pay what you think’ basis and tickets can be collected from the museum’s Box Office on the day.
Bristol Museum and Art Gallery is open 10am – 5pm from Tuesday – Sunday and is situated on Queens Road, BS8 1RL.
