The Jurassic Garden in Whitby
In Whitby there is a museum with a huge collection of fossils.
You can see the many specimens from the collection at http://www.whitbymuseum.org.uk/type/ftlist.htm
The museum is situated in Pannett Park and in one section of the park is the Jurassic Garden which links to the specimens inside the museum.
There is a path through plants which are similar to those that were growing in the times of the dinosaurs
Here is a monkey puzzle tree. Trees like this one were growing 200 million years ago and would have been seen by dinosaurs.
Looking back along the path you can get an impression of what the plant life would have looked like back in dinosaur times. You could almost expect to see one come crashing out of the trees!
