Dippy on Tour at Ulster Museum

Marcon has completed the fit-out of the new Dippy on Tour exhibition at the Ulster Museum, Belfast.  It has long been the first sight to greet visitors to London’s Natural History Museum but now visitors to the Ulster Museum are greeted by the iconic Diplodocus dinosaur skeleton.  ‘Dippy’ the Diplodocus cast has taken residence in the Ulster Museum as part of a road trip across the UK, as he ventures out of London for the first time since 1905.

Marcon managed the fit-out of the exhibition, manufacturing the setworks and coordinating the installation of the display cases, AV and interactives throughout the space.  Marcon’s in-house joinery workshop was utilised to manufacture the many items within the exhibition.  A specialist team from the Natural History Museum installed the Diplodocus skeleton.
