About this event

Join us as we celebrate this famous fossil’s discovery.

Take a closer look at SUE in these online events and brush up on little-known facts about the most complete adult Tyrannosaurus rex. Field Museum staff 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 using the Q&A feature of the Zoom Webinar (or sending them directly to us 24 hours ahead of your scheduled tour.) We’ll answer your questions during your 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).

Virtual tours for classrooms

We offer special tours just for students on select Tuesdays during the school year. One tour hosts all classrooms and student groups who registered for that day, including homeschooled students.


Virtual tours for the public

SUE fans are welcome to attend select tours throughout the year. These tours feature a special theme and guest speakers who share new trivia and behind-the-scenes stories from the museum.
