A Dinosaur Encounter exhibition will head to Lincoln from London’s Natural History Museum for the first time this summer.

People will be able to come face-to-face with their favourite dinosaurs at The Collection Museum on Danes Terrace in Lincoln from Saturday, July 13 to Sunday, September 8. It will be open 10am-4pm (Fridays 10am-9pm).

There will be impressive dinosaur models and animatronics and fossil replicas. The exhibition also features an animatronic model three quarters the size of a life-size T-Rex.
