The Jurassic rocks of Lyme Regis have been famous for fossils since Mary Anning discovered the first Ichthyosaur in 1811.
Dinosaurland Fossil Museum is housed in a magnificent grade 1 listed building which was once the church where Mary Anning was baptised and where she used to worship.
Dinosaurland Fossil Museum is a private museum which is owned and run by Palaeontologist Steve Davies and his wife Jenny. It is a traditional museum using the beauty and majesty of thousands of specimens to show people just how exciting and wonderful the world of fossils and dinosaurs really is.
The museum contains a spectacular collection of the local Jurassic marine fossils. The collection grows each year and is now probably the best fossil collection on public display in SW England.
