The Natural History Museum’s touring exhibition, T.rex: The Killer Question, will be shown in the 900-year-old cathedral this summer. Plans to present the exhibition in 2020 and 2021 had to be shelved due to the pandemic.

This world class exhibition has nine roaring and moving animatronic dinosaurs of various sizes, including a three-quarter size T.rex. A 12-metre-long static model of a T. rex and a life-size T. rex skeleton will also be on show, facing each other across the Cathedral transepts.

The exhibition poses the killer question: Was T. rex a ferocious hunter or a mere scavenger? It also shows examples of bones and fossils to see what they can tell us about T. rex.

Pre-booking is recommended as tickets will only be on sale at the door if sessions are not already sold out.  There’s also a programme of talks and family activities.
