Dippy is coming to the Jurassic Coast: Dorchester first stop!

Director of Dorset County Museum, Dr Jon Murden and Dr Sam Rose, Jurassic Coast are excited to be welcoming Dippy to the heart of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, and agree that “as the birthplace of palaeontology, there is nowhere in the UK more appropriate for Dippy to start his national tour than Dorset and we’re thrilled to have been chosen as the first host venue."

The Jurassic Coast Trust is delighted to be partnering with Dorset County Museum to bring Dippy to Dorset. We will be working with schools, community groups, local charities, children’s centres, and other museums and visitor centres along the length of the World Heritage Site to help people across the region take full advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
