ROAR
You can always spot families arriving at The National Dinosaur Museum for the first time. The moment the kids spot the enormous fibreglass dinosaurs roaming the grass in front of the museum their faces light up. Some of them shout and point. Some jump up and down. Some glance at their parents as if to say, "Are you seeing what I'm seeing?"

In the atrium there is a metre-tall animatronic dinosaur which is an excellent test for people with younger children - if it's scary, the museum is not the attraction for them.

Inside the foyer are several wonderful interactive exhibits for younger children, and inside the museum proper there is plenty of education to be had, but the emphasis lies firmly on giant dinosaur figures, many of them animatronic.

This museum is a hidden treasure.
