We are hosting a major temporary exhibition called Dino Hunter from 13 June to 27 September here at Milestones, which is all about discovering some of the earliest Victorian dinosaur hunters, exploring fossilized creatures, and culminating in encountering 5 life-size animatronic dinosaurs.

The main exhibition hall will be in the Thornycroft building, so due to preparations for this temporary exhibition, the Thornycroft exhibition will not be available from 28 April until the end of October.

Some of the vehicles and objects normally on display will be in storage until they return into a refreshed Thornycroft exhibition by the end of October.

The Wallis & Steevens building will also be unavailable for viewing.

Further details of exact exhibits and their current locations are available on request.

Thank you for your patience and we apologise for any inconvenience.
