People can be transported 165 million years back in time to discover which dinosaurs roamed the area at an exhibition near Whitby this month.

Dinosaurs roamed these shores 165 million years ago, and there is plenty of fossilised footprint evidence to prove it.

However, where are the actual body remains?

The exhibition called Scarborough’s Lost Dinosaurs at the Rotunda Museum in Scarborough brings together for the first time, all the fossilised evidence for dinosaurs in the region throughout the Jurassic period.

Come face to face with the area’s very own lost dinosaurs, find out about the plants they ate, the sounds they heard and the world they inhabited.

From Monday May 27 to Friday May 31, kids can be face-painted as a dinosaur and make a scary dino mask to take home, as well as visiting the museum’s resident megalosaur in the exhibition.

The family fun days take place from 11am to 4pm and entrance is included in the standard admission fee.

During the same dates, at Scarborough Art Gallery, there will be retro crafting and dressing up to reflect the rock ‘n’ roll outfits in the current exhibition, Halfway to Paradise – portraits of musicians from the 50s and 60s by celebrated photographer Harry Hammond.

Youngsters can create their own 1950s outfit by crafting a pair of groovy glasses and a glam guitar and even have their picture taken with the Beatles.
