Meet Dippy in Coventry
Meet Dippy the world-famous dino-star in Coventry as it takes up residence at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum.
Dippy the dinosaur is a life-size replica of a Diplodocus carnegii skeleton – a 26 metre-long dinosaur that lived 155-145 million years ago. For over 100 years, Dippy has been delighting visitors of all ages at the Natural History Museum in London, and now Coventry families have the chance to discover the Jurassic giant on their doorstep.
