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