Staff and volunteers at Ely Museum bought dinosaur fun to over 1500 people this February half-term at our two events at Ely Library!

From handling the fossils of the marine reptiles that once swam in the warm Jurassic seas surrounding Ely to making triceratops masks and a plesiosaur puppet – it was great to see so many of you joining us at the library!

We learnt about different types of ammonites, belemnites, ichthyosaur and pilosaurs as well as looking at the sharp teeth of plesiosaur and megalodon!

It was great to see so many of you excited to see our collection of fossils and asking lots of great questions too

Whilst Storm Dennis put the quash on our plans to host the event at Ely Markets on Thursday too, thankfully the team at the library were happy to have us back to repeat the fun

Whilst Ely Museum is closed for our National Lottery Heritage Fund redevelopment project, our crafts, events, collections and school sessions have gone on the road across Ely & East Cambridgeshire so it was great to see so many of you at the event!

We’d also like to say a big thank you to all our volunteers who helped with our craft activities, helping you all to make your triceratops masks & made fun plesiosaur puppets – you all looked great!

Make sure you’re following us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to hear about our next event!
