Dippy the Dinosaur makes her first appearance at the Dorchester Museum near the Jurassic Coast in Dorset.<br />
<br />
Dippy the Diplodocus today went on display outside of London for the first time in over 100 years as he began the first leg of a two year tour of the country.<br />
<br />
The Natural History Museum's iconic 292-piece dinosaur skeleton was painstakingly taken down, packed in 12 crates and transported to the Dorset County Museum where he will spend the next three months. <br />
<br />
At 70ft long Dippy just about squeezed into the museum's Victorian Hall gallery which measures 71ft. Experts had to remove some balcony balustrades to fit him in with just four inches to spare.
