Want to get involved in some free pre-historic hysterics this weekend?

On Saturday 24 & Sunday 25 March between 1-4.30pm you will have the opportunity to meet Tiny, a juvenile Stegosaurus at World Museum.

Tiny has wowed audiences up and down the country and the animated dinosaur is set to do the same in Liverpool. Using a combination of live sound, facial animatronics and extreme puppetry Tiny will really come to life.

The dinosaur will also be accompanied by a palaeontologist who will give a lively and informative natural history show. You will be encouraged to ‘get tactile’ with Tiny and have a go at being palaeontologists yourselves.

If this Jurassic giant isn’t enough there is also an exhibition of amazing life-sized moving dinosaurs in Age of the Dinosaur. On until 15 April 2012 you can experience the sights, sounds and smells of the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. The admission charge for Age of the Dinosaur is £6 adults, £3 children and concessions, under 5s free, £14 families. Book online at

Tiny the stegosaur is brought to Liverpool by interactive street artists, Los Kaos.
