Dippy on Tour: A Natural History Adventure

Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery

26 May – 9 September 2018

Come and meet Dippy the Diplodocus, on tour from the Natural History Museum, and learn how dinosaurs evolved into birds.


This is the only chance to see the famous diplodocus in the Midlands. The skeleton is on display as part of a wider exhibition throughout the Gas Hall which explains how Dippy might have been the end of the line for herbivorous dinosaurs but the meat-eating dinosaurs continued to evolve into birds.

Bringing Birmingham’s colourful bird collection back to BMAG for the first time in nearly 20 years, the exhibition will show the amazing diversity of modern birds and how they evolved to become one of the most successful groups of animals, inhabiting almost every part of the world from the oceans of Antarctica to tropical rainforests.
