Journey through time and discover how birds are like modern-day dinosaurs. You’ll learn about dinosaurs that evolved wings and the first creatures that looked like birds. You can also find out how we can help birds cope with a changing world.

“Do you think you’re as clever as a bird? Take on the challenge with interactive games, feel the beat of a hummingbird’s heart, sniff the stinky eggs of seabirds, chirp along with the dawn chorus and even see what it’s like through their eyes using UV light! Explore how birds are related to dinosaurs – including the T-rex!” Siobhan from the Natural History Museum.
