Friends of Crystal Palace Dinosaurs

The Dinosaurs in film and media

The Crystal Palace Dinosaurs have been around for over 150 years and their iconic status has seen them used as both focus and backdrop in TV, music videos and film.

In order to celebrate the Dinosaurs through the ages we have compiled a selection of some of our favourite footage featuring the Dinosaurs.

Historical photos and film also provide a vital archive that records how the Dinosaurs have changed in appearance and condition over time that we can use to inform conservation and restoration activities.

Note: this list is far from exhaustive but if you think of something that should be added let us know!
