Dinosaur Isle is Britain's first purpose-built dinosaur museum and visitor attraction, displaying over 1,000 of the best fossils from its collections.
An introductory exhibition gallery covers the geology and fossils of the Isle of Wight in a walk back through time, taking the visitor from the Ice Age of the recent past, back to the Cretaceous period when dinosaurs lived. This leads to the large dinosaur gallery, which has exciting displays including real fossils, skeletal re-constructions, life-sized fleshed re-constructions and animatronic dinosaurs.
Dinosaur Isle is an all-year-round facility, combining entertainment, education and enjoyment. Displays use clever lighting, artwork, sound, smells and animatronic technology to create an exciting experience. As well as the displays, there is a working laboratory on view, and a room set aside for learning sessions.
We are located next to the sandy beach at Sandown, within a short distance of the excellent geological exposures at Yaverland.
