Missing SUE, everyone’s favorite T. rex? Us, too.

Revisit SUE in these online events and brush up on little-known facts about the most complete Tyrannosaurus rex. A Field docent will guide you from SUE’s life in the Cretaceous to the latest scientific research. Using a 3D virtual model scanned straight from SUE’s fossilized bones, they’ll point out key features that give hints about SUE’s past.

Trivia breaks give you the chance to test your dinosaur knowledge. Plus, submit your questions to the docent in advance, and they’ll answer you during the tour.

This online event is free with a suggested $10 donation and is suitable for adults, families, and kids (recommended for ages 5 and older). Tours are available every month, 3:30–4:30pm (CST).
