Families explored the world of dinosaurs at Lynn Museum with a trail and craft-making.

Lynn Museum held the summer holiday event so youngsters can learn more about the creatures which roamed Earth millions of years ago. 

Visitors who attended on Tuesday met Dr David Waterhouse, senior curator of natural history and geology at Norfolk Museums Service.

They learned about his experience of digging up tyrannosaurus remains and handled fossils.

The museum’s learning team was also on hand to help children make their own dinosaur crafts to take home.

Front of  house supervisor Beth Kierman said: “We sold out that day, with 106 visitors – our upper limit at the moment. It went really well.”

• The museum has also collaborated with Stories of Lynn to hold a free dinosaur trail around the town centre.

It is running every day until Tuesday, August 31. To take part, visit Stories of Lynn on the Saturday Market Place.
