Dippy the Dinosaur visits Coventry

Fresh from the Natural History Museum, Dippy the Diplodocus stomps into the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Coventry from February 2023, where it will be dino-in-residence for three years!
Dippy the dinosaur is a life-size, plaster-of-paris replica of a Diplodocus carnegii skeleton. It was gifted to the Natural History Museum by Andrew Carnegie and was unveiled for the first time on 12 May 1905.
Diplodocus carnegii lived during the Late Jurassic period, about 155 – 145 million years ago and their skeletons have been found in North America. They were huge, plant-eating dinosaurs, with long whip-like tails. They grew to about 24-26 metres long and probably weighed up to around 15 tonnes. For comparison, a London double-decker bus is around 14 metres long and weighs 12 tonnes.
You can visit Dippy the Dinosaur from mid February 2023 onwards and whilst tickets are free, it is highly recommended to book in advance.

When: Mid February 2023 – 2026
Where: Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Coventry
Tickets: Booking ahead essential
