A T. rex Named SUE

No dinosaur in the world compares to SUE—the largest, most complete, and best preserved Tyrannosaurus rex ever discovered.

At a heart stopping 42 feet (12.8 m) long and 12 feet (3.66 m) high at the hip, a spectacular full-sized skeleton cast of SUE is the centerpiece of this exciting bilingual exhibition.

A T. rex Named SUE combines thrilling science, engaging educational activities, and blockbuster appeal in one of the most successful traveling exhibitions ever. Host venues have increased year-over-year attendance by 15 to 20%. A T. rex Named SUE engages visitors of all ages and has attracted over 6.5 million visitors from 57 cities in 12 countries.

This exhibit was created by The Field Museum, Chicago, and made possible through the generosity of McDonald’s ® Corporation.
