Are you planning to visit the Museum?

If so, you can print out one of our trails and bring it with you to complete while you're here. The trails guide you around the Museum and ask you questions about the exhibits.

So print one out and have a go!

Dinosaur Detective Trail

We do try to keep all of the trails up to date, however, the Museum is changing all the time. If you are having problems finding a specimen please ask at the front desk. To print out your trail you may need to download a programme called Adobe reader.
