Dinosaurs coming to Telford as new museum complete with prehistoric skeletons gets set to open


Dinosaurs are on their way to Telford as the region’s first natural history museum gets set to open.

Visitors to Telford Exotic Zoo will be able to step back in time and see everything from real dinosaur skeletons to fossils from millions of years ago.

Scott Adams, from the Exotic Zoo, based at Telford Town Park, said it had always been his dream to open such a museum.

That is set to become reality in July.

Scott said zoos concentrated on the living and he wanted to show visitors how animals and other creatures have evolved from prehistoric times.

“There isn’t a natural history museum anywhere near here,” Scott said.

“When I found out that Dippy the Dinosaur at the National History Museum is a cast of not one but six different dinosaurs I was a little disappointed.”
