The Natural History Museum is going for the immersive touch for its big summer show.
Rocks, trees and swamp-like lagoons will play host to games, precious fossils, specimen replica handling, theories on what the world might have looked like 65 million years ago and a series of lifesize animatronic gargantuan reptiles.
Their numbers range from fukuiraptors – carnivores who plundered Japan in the Lower Cretaceous period – to the omnivorous harpymimus once found in Mongolia.

Towering images and film footage also tell tales of long-departed plants and animals.
