Step into the world of SUE: The T. rex Experience!
This interactive, engaging, and hands-on exhibition features an exact replica of SUE’s skeleton measuring 40 feet long and 13 feet tall at the hip. The skeleton faces off against a full-scale replica of a Triceratops, one of T. rex’s natural enemies!
Explore the sights, sounds, and smells of SUE's prehistoric world in high-tech simulations, while a unique multimedia show transports you to the Cretaceous forest alongside SUE.
SUE is named after the paleontologist who discovered the Tyrannosaurus rex, Sue Hendrickson. She uncovered the dinosaur in 1990 during a commercial excavation trip north of Faith, South Dakota. Scientists are still learning new things about the T. rex, due in large part to SUE’s incredibly well-preserved bones.
