Explore the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum's permanent galleries with our Dippy-inspired fossil trail. From snakestones to devil's fingers, this fun, free trail explores the connection between fossils and folklore, with displays dotted around the building.

A great way for families to explore the museum together, before or after visiting Dippy: The Nation's Favourite Dinosaur, on loan from the Natural History Museum.
