Dippy begins a UK tour today, with the first very appropriate stop on the Jurassic Coast, Dorset.
The iconic replica has been on display in the Natural History Museum (NHM) since 1905, and this is the first time it has been displayed outside the famous London attraction.
So on the way to the Dorset County Museum, we took Dippy on a little trip around the county.
Being a model of a Diplodocus carnegii species, Dippy went straight for the beach, obviously.
Not used to this soggy atmosphere after spending 1979 to 2017 in the NHM’s Hintze Hall entrance, Dippy soon legged it.
Developing a taste for steam, Dippy then popped into the Great Dorset Steam Fair.
Next up – Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
