Crystal Palace Park dinosaurs 

Model dinosaur in Crystal Palace Park

The iconic dinosaurs are much loved by visitors to the park. Sculptor and fossil expert Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins and founder of the Natural History Museum, Richard Owen, erected the model dinosaurs when the park first opened. They were the first artistic representations of dinosaurs of their size and have been enjoyed by both younger and older generations for over a century. Don't forget to take your smart phone so that you can enjoy the free audio guide while exploring these majestic creatures.
