The local, love-able dinosaur, Britannia-saurus Rex will be back this Easter. Dino eggs will be hidden throughout the Museum site for kids to find. The eggs contain gem stones and after the egg hunting is done be sure to join in the activities and identify your gemstones. We’d recommend arriving early as, although there are loads of hidden eggs, they are often found very quickly!
