Half-Term Fun at the Beacon Museum (Whitehaven) with Everything Dinosaur
On Saturday and Sunday, 26th and 27th of October, Everything Dinosaur are going to be on the road again as they will be working that weekend at The Beacon in Whitehaven exploring all things “Ice Age and Sharky” as a staff member succinctly puts it. Visitors to the wonderful museum on Copeland’s harbour side will get the chance to meet Everything Dinosaur team members and to get to grips with real fossils of ancient prehistoric animals. From 10am to 4.30pm each day, Everything Dinosaur will be on hand to guide visitors through the exhibits, answer questions and to demonstrate what we do and don’t know about mammals and giant birds that evolved after the dinosaurs extinction. In addition, team members will be highlighting the importance of sharks both today and in prehistory, tracing 400 million years of shark evolution.
Everything Dinosaur – Back at The Beacon
The event, which is included as part of the normal admission price, is inspired by The Beacon’s two blockbuster exhibitions “Ice Age – Life After Dinosaurs” and “Shark! Myths & Reality” which are showing until 5th January. If you have ever wondered just how sharp the tooth of a giant prehistoric shark was, well, if you pop along to The Beacon that weekend you might get the chance to find out!
Learn about the very first sea monsters, get up close to the business end of a Woolly Mammoth, discover how the Sabre-Toothed Tiger got its misleading name and release your inner Neanderthal. All these topics and more will be covered by our enthusiastic team members, and we will try to answer questions too, as well as having some dinosaur fossils on hand.
