What's On

Warwickshire's Jurassic Sea

Discover the amazing creatures that lived in Coventry and Warwickshire during the time of the dinosaurs

A fossilised ichthyosaur skull from the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum collection

Free | Dippy tickets required

Presented in collaboration with Warwickshire Museum, this free fossil display will take you back in time to the Jurassic era, a time when much of the region was underwater.

A selection of fossils drawn from both the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum and Warwickshire Museum collections offer a fascinating insight into the strange sea creatures that swam through Coventry and Warwickshire between 200 and 145 million years ago. The display includes our star fossil - an ichthyosaur skull found in Harbury.

Held in the Herbert's covered court, this exhibition is only accessible to ticket-holders for Dippy: The Nation's Favourite Dinosaur. Find out more about visiting Dippy here.
