In Pictures: Dinosaur junior rocks World Museum Liverpool as T-Rex runs amok

| 03 December 2010
National Museums Liverpool had a new visitor one weekend in December 2010 - a baby Tyranosaurus Rex which roamed the galleries of the World Museum Liverpool.

The 14 foot long mechanical T-Rex, which was at the World Museum until December 5 2010, menaced local reporters and photographers outside the museum before being introduced to local schoolchildren by the museum’s resident Charles Darwin.
