About this event

Learn about this famous fossil’s history, complete with trivia and an interactive 3D model.

Is there love in the warm, Cretaceous air? Decide for yourself as you spend some quality time with our famous, one-of-a-kind T. rex, SUE! In this special session, learn all about what makes SUE such an incredible specimen and interact with museum educators on Zoom. As a special bonus, tune in to a matchmaking game to help us decide which contestant gets to go out to eat with SUE!

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 to us directly 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).
