Natural History Museum to bring Dino Jaws Exhibition to New Dock Hall

The Natural History Museum is bringing the thrilling Dino Jaws exhibition to The New Dock Hall in Leeds in the summer of 2014.

Intrigued by dinosaurs and how they lived millions of years ago?

Get yourself to the fantastic Dino Jaws exhibition. 
Visitors can see how dinosaurs lived and what they ate from the flesh-eating to plant-munching dinosaurs.

James Vincent-Managing Director of Royal Armouries (International) Plc- quotes, “There is always fantastic interest in anything “dinosaurs” everyone I have spoken to immediately says “we’ll be there”. We are all very excited that this Natural History Museum branded exhibition is coming to New Dock Leeds”.

New Dock Hall  is excited to have this interactive exhibition showcased all summer long.
An exhibit in Dino Jaws that is not for the faint hearted but highly interesting is the big mound representing a couple of week’s worth of Euoplocephalus poo. Visitors can feel this and see exactly what the herbivore ate all those millions of years ago.

Bewleys Hotel Leeds is the perfect place to stay if you want to visit this exhibition as The New Dock Hall is only an eight minute walk from the hotel and right next to Leeds Railway Station.
