Everything Dinosaur Prepares to Help Out at Museum Exhibitions

Team members from Everything Dinosaur will be on hand to guide visitors through the Beacon Museum’s two exciting summer exhibitions when they make special guest appearances, the first of which is taking place on the weekend of the 3rd and 4th of August.

Visitors to the Beacon Museum can come face-to-face with life size replicas of giant prehistoric beasts from the Ice Age as well as learn all about amazing creatures from the deep as the Copeland museum hosts “Ice Age – Life after Dinosaurs” and “Shark! Myths and Reality”.

Staff from Everything Dinosaur will explain how the Sabre-Toothed Tiger got its misleading name and what to do if attacked by a Woolly Rhinoceros.  Providing an insightful Ice Age survival guide as well as pointing out just how closely related to Neanderthals some of the residents of Whitehaven might actually be.

Sharks are an ancient group with a fossil record stretching back over 420 million years and Everything Dinosaur team members will explain some of the similarities between sharks and “land-sharks” otherwise known as dinosaurs.

Despite the fearsome reputation of giant shark predators such as the enormous Megalodon, whose jaws were so big it could have swallowed a Great White Shark whole, Everything Dinosaur will also be introducing museum visitors to some of the other super-sized predators that once terrorised the seas.
