Marine Worlds Gallery

Discover the Thinktank Ichthyosaur, an almost 200 million year old giant sea monster from the time of the dinosaurs. Explore the other animals from the past and present that have adapted to life in the sea, including walrus, penguins and prehistoric marine crocodiles.

The highlight of the gallery is the Ichthyosaur skeleton which is being displayed in full for the first time. Ichthyosaurs were marine predators that looked a lot like dolphins but they were actually reptiles. The skeleton has just been the focus of a two year conservation and research project, revealing that it is the largest Ichthyosaurus in the UK and potentially a new species. 

The gallery is located on Level 2.
