VISITORS to The Herbert Art Gallery's new exhibition will travel back 250 million years.

Dinosaurs have set up home until January at the city museum.

Dinosaurs Uncovered features life-size creatures, real and replica fossils as well as holographic video presentations by wildlife expert Chris Packham.

Visitors will even come face-to-face with the skull of the ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex or witness the strength of the Stegosaurus' armour plating.

Exhibition officer Dominic Bubb said: "Everybody loves dinosaurs and has a favourite one.

"This exhibition will showcase a range of these magnificent creatures and uncover some of their amazing facts.

"The interactives make every experience unique as it'll take what people already know and expand on it."

Entry costs £4.95 for children and concessions, £5.95 for adults or £18.00 for a family - two adults with two children or one adult with three children.
