Unravel an ancient mystery, millions of years in the making. Was the fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex a predator, or a scavenger?
From 24th May to 3rd September The Longhouse at Longleat will be taken over by an astonishing collection of prehistoric creatures from the world famous Natural History Museum. Discover eight animatronic dinosaur models and static scenes which willtake you on a journey of discovery, all under one roof in T.REX: The Killer Question.
An Edmontosaurus mother with her nest of duck-billed hatchlings, an armoured ankylosaur being preyed upon, and a towering T. rex skeleton cast all feature in this astonishing exhibition.
Get hands on with fossil replicas and artefacts and square up to a life-size animatronic T. rex – who, if alive today, would weigh around seven tons and whose jaws would crush the sturdiest of bone with ease. Visit The Longhouse at Longleat and decide for yourself if the king of the dinosaurs, the T. rex, deserves the fearsome title of predator, or whether it was an opportunistic scavenger instead.
In partnership with The Natural History Museum
Entry to T.REX: The Killer Question is included in a Group Day Ticket or Group Two-Day Ticket and parties of 12+ can book with up to a 30% discount.
