14 Aug A Tour Stop at The Durham
Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family, a touring exhibition, brings the latest tyrannosaur discoveries to life, overturning our preconceptions about these ferocious predators. A focal point of the exhibition is the cast of ‘Scotty’, one of the largest and most complete T. rex specimens in the world. Connected to Scotty is a suite of exhibit stations that reveal what made T. rex the ultimate predator and the wealth of research (and debate) surrounding this fascinating creature. A favorite with visitors of all ages, it also provides great photo opportunities and highlights the massive scale of the mighty T. rex compared with humans.
The exhibition is currently on display at The Durham Museum in Omaha, NE through September 1, when it will hit the road again, traveling next to Edinburgh, Scotland.
“Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family has been great with visitors. It has surpassed our last dinosaur show in total number and number of repeat visitors. Families and individuals or all ages have enjoyed the mix of academic information and fun interactivity. It’s become the “must see” exhibition of Omaha this summer.”
Carrie Meyer, Chief Curator, The Durham Museum
