Tyrannosaurus rex has long commanded respect and sparked curiosity in the mind of the public, and Sue is the most famous T. rex of all. At 42 feet long and 12 feet tall at the hips, her skeleton inspires as much awe today as she did 67 million years ago. In the featured exhibit “A T. rex Named Sue” opening Jan. 24 at the Florida Museum of Natural History, explore how this remarkable creature interacted with its world and what we can learn from studying its bones. Revel in the sheer magnitude of a fully articulated, life-size skeleton cast while learning about Sue’s movement, vision and sense of smell.

Enjoy family-friendly interactives, climb into the dig pit to uncover fossils and learn about dinosaurs through touchable bone replicas and other hands-on activities. Come to the Florida Museum to experience the largest, most complete and best preserved Tyrannosaurus rex ever discovered!

This exhibition was created by The Field Museum, Chicago, and made possible through the generosity of McDonald’s Corporation. For more information, visit http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/exhibits/coming-soon/t-rex-named-sue/.
