We introduce you to geological time and explain how we can date rocks. A time line runs up the stairs to give you an idea of the vastness of geological time and to show how insignificant man is.

Who are we...
Dinosaurland Fossil Museum is a private museum which is owned and run by Palaeontologist Steve Davies and his wife Jenny. The museum contains a spectacular collection of the local Jurassic marine fossils. The collection grows each year and is now probably the best fossil collection on public display in SW England.
It is a traditional museum using the beauty and majesty of more than 12,000 specimens to show people just how exciting and wonderful the world of fossils and dinosaurs really is.
We have a comprehensive shop at the museum where you can buy more than 500 types of fossil and more than 500 types of mineral.
During the Early Jurassic, 200 million years ago, what is now Britain was positioned at a latitude of about 30 degrees North.
