Dinosaurs roamed the Isle of Wight between 125 and 110 million years ago. Then the area was sub-tropical and part of a large river valley complex. At that time, the swamps and ponds stretched from England to Belgium, and the conditions were favourable for forming fossils.
Dinosaur Isle has been described by scholars as having the most essential collection of dinosaurs in the UK, second only to the National History Museum in London.
Thousands of people enjoy The Dinosaur Isle experience every year, and it is a firm favourite of families. During your visit, you will see, hear, feel, and even smell dinosaurs. The knowledge you will gain will stand you in good stead for a walk on Compton Beach, where you will recognise dinosaur footprints.
The museum is open all year round; below is the website link for more information; enjoy your visit!
