Get free tickets to see Dippy the diplodocus on display in Coventry
DETAILS have been released about how to obtain free tickets to see Dippy the diplodocus.
The dinosaur, who is usually found at the Natural History Museum in London, is on the move and will soon be on display in Coventry at the Herbert Art Gallery.
However, there was the complicated job of taking apart the 292-bone model of the diplodocus skeleton for the 100-mile journey to Coventry. But the 26m-long model will soon be back in order, ready for visitors from Monday, 20th February, as part of the free installation, Dippy in Coventry: The Nation’s Favourite Dinosaur.
Cllr David Welsh, cabinet member for housing and communities at Coventry City Council, said: “Having Dippy on display in Coventry is fantastic for the city. It is another example of how Coventry is attracting world-famous exhibits and growing the arts and culture offer following our year as City of Culture.
“Not only is this a thrilling opportunity for visitors to learn about natural history, but it is also expected to bring more tourists to the city and have a positive impact on the local economy. The best part of it all is that it is free to visit!”
Dippy will be in Coventry for three years.
