Welcome to Dinosaur Isle

Discover the history of the dinosaurs that roamed the Isle of Wight over 125 million years ago.

You can see, hear, touch, and smell the dinosaurs. Learn all about their stories and how they lived.

We will show you fossils, rocks, minerals, and lots of other interesting natural history items. All of them collected or discovered on the Isle of Wight and its surrounding waters.

Dinosaur Isle is a family-friendly museum. The whole exhibition is inside which makes it an ideal place to visit come rain or shine!

“The most important collection of dinosaurs in the UK, second only to the Natural History Museum in London”
