Jill Walker, duty manager, said: “Dinosaurs are always very popular.

“It was a family event so we had everything from little tots to grandparents.

“It’s great because it raises our profile in the town.”

The museum, in Market Street, Lynn, aims to tell the story of West Norfolk through static and interactive displays.
