Crystal Palace Dinosaurs Conservation Open Day for October half term

On Wednesday 26 October bring the family down to Crystal Palace Park to get up close and personal with the famous Crystal Palace Dinosaurs.  During major conservation works on seven of the swimming statues, Friends of Crystal Palace Dinosaurs, Skillington Workshop and Bromley Council invite you to see the famous sculptures as you’ve never seen them before…

When you arrive, the Friends’ conservation team will provide an introduction to the sculptures, their design and construction and how they’re being restored. You can even roll your sleeves up and try your hand at some conservation techniques!

You’ll then join a small group for a 30-minute tour of the Dinosaur island and an explanation of the conservation works from Skillington Workshop, the specialist sculpture conservators undertaking the work on the two ichthyosaurs, two plesiosaurs, two teleosaurs and a mosasaur.



Wednesday 26 October from 12 to 5pm in Crystal Palace Park.

Tours are free but booking is essential. Book your place here.

Conservation activities are free and run on a drop-in basis between 12 and 4pm.

Find us by the picnic tables on the lower lake just behind the Giant Tree Sloth (Megatherium).
