Wollaton Hall


The first real Tyrannosaurus rex to be exhibited in England for over a century will arrive in Nottingham this summer. The skeleton of Titus, discovered in the Montana Badlands in 2018, will be revealed for the first time at the Wollaton Hall Natural History Museum, the focus of a new exhibition set to explore his life and environment. Opening on Sunday 4th July 2021 and running until August 2022, the exhibition, Titus: T. rex is King, has been specially designed around the T. rex, himself, with digital and interactive virtual media displays that will immerse visitors in his extraordinary journey from discovery in the Montana Badlands in the USA, through the experience of excavation, curation, examination, rebuild and final reveal. The exhibition, taking over some 4,000 square feet, explores the legend of the T. rex and is also set to dispel some myths about this immense iconic dinosaur – that lived over 66 million years ago. Tickets for TITUS T. REX IS KING are on sale now, set at £12.00 for an adult, £8.00 for a child (under 16 years), students and concessions, £32.00 for a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children under 16 years) and under 3s and carers have no entry fees to pay. Booking fees & car parking charges apply. With covid safety measures in place, booking in advance is essential. There will also be a range of special merchandise developed to accompany the exhibition including a limited-edition book, cataloguing in even greater detail, the story of Titus.
