One of the most alluring dinosaur related attractions is located in Sandown - Dinosaur Isle. With so many fine hotels in the area, it's an excellent place to begin your Isle of Wight holiday.

A Fascinating and Interactive Museum

Dinosaur Isle was launched in its present form in 2001. Housed in a spectacular and unique building, the Museum features an impressive geological collection which is thoughtfully arranged to interest young kids.

The collection features more than 1,000 fossils, walking visitors through the island's history from the Cretaceous Period to the Ice Age. Across the dino gallery, visitors can find fossils and skeletal reconstructions, as well as a pair of animatronic dinosaurs, guaranteed to entertain the little ones. The museum also features disabled access and baby changing facilities.

In fact, the nearby Yaverland Beach is one of several locations across the island where regular dinosaur exhibitions take place. What's more, the island's south-east coast is a magnificent place to walk and take in the views across the Channel.
