Time Out says

Five giant animatronic models dominate this exhibit dedicated to imagining what dinosaurs really looked like

You can rarely go too long at the Horniman without encountering some form of prehistoric life: following its recent ‘Permian Monsters’ and ‘Brick Dinos’ exhibitions, 2024 sees it play host ‘Dinosaur rEvolution’. Based around five showstopping animatronic models – including a seven-metre-long T-Rex – the general idea is that it’s compliant with current scientific thinking on what these creatures looked like: so lots of feathers, basically, alongside quills, spikes and all sorts of vibrant colours. Alongside the moving monsters will be various games and activities, plus a smattering of casts of actual fossils, including skeletons of velociraptor and compsognathus. If you haven’t yet got the message that the Jurassic Park-slash-World films were very wrong about what dinos looked like, you hopefully will after this.
