Clare, our dinosaur who lives by the Museum steps, has been exploring our galleries. In every display case that she visited, she laid an egg. Can you find them all and answer Clare's questions to win a prize?


We also have regular fossil handling activities on Saturdays and in school holidays, please do phone (01223 333456) to check what's on when you plan to visit.
