The Natural History Museum’s famous dinosaur, Dippy, has left the museum for the first time to go on a tour of the UK, and Rochdale has been selected as one of just eight venues which will host him during the tour.


Visitors to Rochdale, Dippy’s only North West stop, can enjoy two dinosaur adventures as part of their visit and they’re both free.


To celebrate Dippy’s stopover, Touchstones Rochdale have redesigned their gallery spaces to host an exciting, ambitious and hands-on exhibition. Explore the world of the dinosaurs, discover what Rochdale was like during their golden age, and learn more about what we can do to protect our planet. There will be plenty of interactives and fun facts to keep all of our visitors interested.
