Event Details
Travel back in time 150 million years and dive into Bristol’s Jurassic seas.

We dare you to come face to face with one very special creature – an eight metre long Pliosaurus called Doris.

She’s the ultimate predator and you’ll be awestruck as you touch her skin, listen to her heartbeat and smell her disgusting breath!

Then travel forward to the present day to find out more about this amazing beast. See her actual fossil – one of the world’s most complete – and play games to discover more about her life and death.

All the family can have fun investigating the science that helped us bring her back to life. Ideal for children aged 3-11 years old.

Discovered in Westbury, Wiltshire in 1994, our internationally significant specimen is the world’s only example of a new species of pliosaur – Pliosaurus carpenteri – and will be on public display for the first time. Pliosaurs are so big that it took ten years to prepare all the fossils that were found.
