SUE the T. rex is the most complete, best-preserved Tyrannosaurus rex ever discovered. And this spring, SUE’s in Boise, Idaho. The Discovery Center of Idaho has partnered with the Micron Foundation to host a special exhibition featuring the latest scientific discoveries about this incredible fossil. Visitors will get to explore the sights, sounds, and smells of SUE’s world, see casts of real dinosaur fossils, and come face to face with an exact cast of SUE’s skeleton.
SUE’s fossils are on permanent display at the Field Museum in Chicago, so the traveling exhibition gives people all over the world a chance to experience one of the biggest T. rex specimens ever found. This exhibition features an exact cast of SUE’s skeleton, measuring in at 40 feet from snout to tail and 13 feet tall at the hip. Visitors will be able to see a lot more than just SUE’s skeleton, though—new interactives and digital technologies will highlight the latest scientific discoveries and show people what SUE’s world was like.
SUE: The T. rex Experience was organized by the Field Museum and is part of the Griffin Dinosaur Experience, made possible by the generous support of the Kenneth C. Griffin Charitable Fund.
SUE will be in Boise for a limited time from May 27th – September 4th, 2022.
Tickets are live! Reserve up to 7 days in advance.
Highlighting New Scientific Discoveries
In addition to the new technologies and interactives that make SUE’s world come alive, this exhibition highlights new scientific discoveries aboutT. rexin general and SUE in particular. While SUE was first found in 1990, scientists are learning new things aboutT. rexevery day, due in large part to SUE’s incredibly well-preserved bones. In this new traveling exhibition, SUE’s skeleton includes all the latest scientific updates, including an extra set of bones that scientists weren’t quite sure how to position when SUE was first found.
