Celebrate the 100th birthday of the Natural History Museum's most iconic exhibit. The 26-metre Diplodocus that dominates the Museum's Central Hall celebrates its centenary at the Museum on Thursday 12 May 2005.

A free display highlights the history of Diplodocus at the Museum, including photographs and press cuttings from the archives, a display of real specimens and a series of events and activities that celebrate the anniversary.

Diplodocus was a sauropod. These plant-eating dinosaurs were abundant in the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Sauropods had a huge body, long neck and tall, stout legs. Visit the display and learn how the Museum's Diplodocus has helped to greatly increase our understanding of sauropod biology.
