Look out for the dinosaurs carved above the door, and the world’s biggest spider inside. This is the oldest of the University museums, established in 1728. There are over 2 million fossils, minerals and rocks from 4.5 billion years ago.
Spot the bronze statue of Adam Sedgwick inside. He holds his geological hammer in one hand, and in another a fossil. If you look at it you will see it contains a trilobite, which is half a billion years old. Kids – that’s even older than your parents!
The huge Iguanodon dinosaur skeleton guards the entrance. The discovery of this creature was vital to understanding more about dinosaurs. There is also a giant deer and a hippopotamus from Cambridgeshire, fossils from the land around.
