Dinosaur Isle

Dinosaur Isle

Situated right on the sea front in Sandown in a spectacular building shaped like a giant pterosaur (the bat like masters of the Cretaceous sky), Dinosaur Isle is the country's only purpose-built dinosaur museum. Dinosaur Isle provides the space and facilities to properly display and conserve the rich geological collections.  

The new museum displays over 1000 of the best fossils from the collections, and the dedicated museum staff and volunteers have spent much time preparing the specimens for the new displays. Dinosaur Isle is an all-year-round facility, combining entertainment, education and enjoyment.  Displays use clever lighting, artwork, sound, smells and animatronic technology to create an exciting experience.
