Dippy on Tour has wowed visitors to the museum since 26th May and is sadly coming to an end. On Sunday 9th September, the Natural History Museum’s famous Diplodocus will be leaving us to continue his adventure to Ulster Museum in Belfast.
To mark Dippy’s last day in Birmingham and to celebrate his time here, on 9th September, we will be hosting a farewell party. To fully get into the dinosaur spirit, and to show Dippy how much he will be missed, we encourage all visitors to get creative and dress up as dinosaurs or birds, or simply in themed clothing. There will be exciting prizes for the best dressed so think carefully and creatively about your outfit! For those who do not want to dress up there will be other fun celebrations throughout the day.
There will be walk up slots available, however as this is expected to be a popular day, pre-booking is recommended to guarantee entry.
Let’s give Dippy a great send off!
This special British icon has delighted visitors since he arrived in London in 1905. The Natural History Museum in partnership with the Garfield Weston Foundation is working with eight partners UK wide to tour one of its most iconic exhibits, with the aim of 1.5 million people across the UK seeing Dippy in person. Dippy’s time at BMAG marked his second stop in his exciting journey.
