Dinosaur Isle


The world renowned dinosaur museum based in Sandown on the Isle of Wight displays over 1000 of the best fossils from their collections, the dedicated museum staff and volunteers spend much of their time ensuring the specimens look great for the new displays.  

When you enter the museum an exhibition gallery covers the geology and fossils of the Isle of wight in a walk back through time, taking you from the Ice Age, back to the Cretaceous period when dinosaurs lived.  This then leads to the large dinosaur gallery, which has exciting displays including real fossils, skeletal re-constructions, life sized  re-constructions and two animatronic dinosaurs. 

Dinosaur Isle can be visited all year round in all weathers with all the family, combining entertainment, education and enjoyment.  

Displays use clever lighting, artwork, sound, smells and animatronic technology to create an exciting experience, especially for the young ones. As well as the displays, there is a working laboratory on view, and a room set aside for learning sessions.  

Full disabled access is available, and the Dinosaur Museum has a large shop. Browns cafeteria is immediately next door to the site.  

Dinosaur Isle can be found at Culver Parade, Sandown Isle of Wight PO36 8QA
