Dinosaur Expeditions C.I.C. is a Community Interest Company created by local fossil enthusiasts. We promote responsible fossil discovery and conservation in addition to helping the public understanding of fossils and the palaeo-environment through Palaeoart. To do this we have established the 'Dinosaur Expeditions, Conservation and Palaeoart Centre' at the site of the Dinosaur Farm Museum. It houses displays of fossils, locally produced palaeoart, childrens' activities and a fossil & mineral giftshop.We also organise popular fossil hunting trips throughout the year at a variety of locations on the Isle of Wight, led by our experienced professional guides. Dinosaur Expeditions CIC pools the local knowledge, talents and experience of our Fossil Hunt leaders. This helps to ensure that we can provide a professional quality experience for all our customers. Are you mad about Dinosaurs and other fossils? We are, so why not join us on an amazing Fossil Hunting Adventure! Discover your own fossils and keep all your finds.

An inspiring afternoon led by Oliver, who was brilliant with kids (6-9) and adults (considerably older!). Pitched it perfectly, super-helpful and informative - suspect we have four wannabe paleontologists now.

The staff here are volunteers and seem very happy to explain about the exhibits. There are real fossils that we were able to touch and feel. Very exciting!

Wow! Just wow! We knew that the island had a rich history with dinosaurs, and had looked into doing some of the guided tours before but they were all really expensive and didn't seem that great... and that all changed when we stumbled on Dinosaur...More

If you are on the Isle of Wight you certainly need to pop in and visit. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful and will identify any possible dinosaur/fossil finds. What a lovely place.
