The time has come for Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum to host the amazing Dippy On Tour. The eagerly awaited Dippy on Tour: A Natural History Adventure opens today (Tuesday 22 January) and will run until 6 May 2019. Admission is free and you do not require a ticket to visit, although people are being asked to leave a little extra time to see Dippy, especially at weekends and during school holidays.
After making the journey all the way from Ulster Museum, Belfast, where he met over 132,000 dinosaur enthusiasts, Dippy will take pride of place in Kelvingrove’s main hall for all visitors to see.
