Drawing out the Dinosaur

Drawing out the Dinosaurs: two centuries of science discovery and artistic inspiration. Nobody has ever seen a living dinosaur, but everybody knows what one looks like. This is because of two centuries of labour from scientists, artists, writers, publishers and filmmakers who have (with varying degrees of accuracy) worked together to turn evidence of death into images of life. Our exhibition captures some of the history of the drawn dinosaur, combining outdated palaeoart with some of the very latest reconstructions of Mesozoic animals. Learn more about how to turn fossils into living beings – even try it yourself! – and find out how our understanding of these creatures has evolved since the 19th century.
