Happy 115th birthday Dippy! 🦕 🎂 Dippy our Diplodocus cast was unveiled to the public at the Museum 115 years ago today. He didn't always live in Hintze Hall though. Watch as museum staff, in 1979, carefully move him to his new home.
Next week is a very special day for one of our biggest and most loved residents, as Dippy turns 115 🥳! In honour of Dippy and #FossilFriday this week's #NatureDrawingClub theme is DINOSAURS 🦕🦖🐧! So dazzle us with your best dino doodle!
As Dippy is having a socially-distant birthday this year, we'd love to see your pictures of our much-loved Diplodocus. Share them using #NHMAtHome and celebrate his 115th birthday with us! #CultureInQuarantineMW
Dippy has featured in newspaper cartoons, news reports and even played starring roles in film and television. Take a look back at his long life as one of the best-loved exhibits in the history of the Museum.
Dippy has had a fantastic time visiting venues around the UK, inspiring both the young and old. Public health must remain everyone’s priority, so #DippyOnTour is currently on pause. We hope he will be welcoming back visitors as soon as possible. We'll share any updates with you.
Now fracking is in trouble, while renewables just keep getting stronger. But I guess some people just have a hard time taking hippie-dippy energy sources seriously 3/
Now here we are over a year later and I was promised proof of “MUH RUSHUH” and all we have are desperate pols who just repeat the same dippy and debunked accusations. <JerryMaguire>Show me the proof!</JerryMaguire> /finis
