An A to Z of Dinosaurs was opened on South Shields Museum & Art Gallery and which has up to 100,000 visitors since June for Dino Mites.

on Saturday, September 25,the exhibit has so far attracted more than 90,000 visitors to the museum in Ocean Road.

Dino Mites, which contains 15 life-size baby dinosaurs, including the formidable T-Rex and Triceratops, originally appeared at the museum in 2000 and attracted a staggering 80,000 visitors during its summer run.

Mr Wilson said,""It's such an exciting exhibition, I can't say I'm surprised that it's captured the imagination of our visitors, especially the family audience who seem to want to come back again and again."

The exhibition is open until Saturday, September 25, when the museum plans to stage a family fun day to give the dinosaurs a good send-off.

The next exhibition, History in the Making: 150 Years of South Shields Museum & Art Gallery, opens on Saturday, October 16.
