Dippy has been wowing visitors in London at the Natural History Museum since 1905!

From 10th February until 28th June 2020, Dippy fans will be able to meet the dino right here in Greater Manchester, at the Number One Riverside building in Rochdale. (Number One Riverside, Smith Street, Rochdale, OL16 1XU)

The visit to Rochdale is part of a bigger iconic UK tour, where Dippy visits 8 venues, hoping to inspire the next generation of scientists.

It will be FREE entry to visit Dippy and no booking will be required. During the visit, a range of activities and events for young and old to enjoy will be organised to coincide with his only stop in the North West.

There will also be a dino-tastic family friendly exhibition at Touchstones Rochdale where you will be able to delve deeper into the natural world. (Touchstones Rochdale, The Esplanade, Rochdale, OL16 1AQ)
