Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

The (onging) tale of two dinosaurs

I guess I didn’t dig deep enough when I ‘compared and contrasted’ the story of two dinosaur exhibitions, one in Glasgow, and one in Edinburgh.

They’d been a handy tool to have a poke at the Edinburgh v Glasgow silliness, but I didn’t realise Glasgow was going to follow on with a stop for the dinosaur that featured in the Edinburgh exhibit. I’d just kind of informally assumed that two were on tour, and Glasgow had got one, and Edinburgh the other.

Another case of ‘Assume makes an ASS out of U and ME’.

Trix the Tyrannosaurus rex will be visiting Glasgow as part of the last leg of its European tour.

The T.rex skeleton will greet visitors in attack mode, with her ferocious teeth and enormous head mounted at eye level, when it goes on display at kelvin Hall from Easter this year.

Tickets to see Trix, a 67-million-year-old female who is 39-foot long, around 13 feet high, weighs five tonnes, have gone on sale…

Another dinosaur is following in Dippy’s footsteps and coming to Glasgow soon

‘She’ will be on display in the Kelvin Hall from April 18 to July 31 of 2019.

However, unlike the more friendly Dippy, across the road and welcoming visitors for free in Kelvingrove, Trix comes with an admission fee.

Tickets for the exhibition cost between £8 and £14 and can be bought HERE.
