Step back in time 290 million years when bizarre-looking animals dominated life on land and sea, and find out about the greatest extinction the world has ever seen in ‘Permian Monsters: Life before the Dinosaurs’.

This unique exhibition brings the past back to life with fossilised skeletons and full-size animatronic models of the animals that ruled the world millions of years before the age of dinosaurs, in a time known as the Permian.

See giant insects, bizarre looking sharks and strange reptiles with mammal-like characteristics and meet the top predator of the time, the giant saber-toothed Gorgonopsid Inostrancevia. This is the Summer Exhibition not to be missed!
