One of the compelling and awe-inspiring features of the exhibition is a life-size replica of Sue, the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex ever discovered. Sue—who lived about 68 million years ago—is 13 feet tall (and that’s just at the hip!), is 42 feet long, and has 58 dagger-like teeth.
Sue the T. rex got her nickname after paleontologist Sue Hendrickson discovered the dinosaur in the summer of 1990 during a commercial fossil hunting trip. The original Sue skeleton is on permanent display at The Field Museum in Chicago.
This limited engagement exhibition is here only through January 2, and we want all the Sues out there to have a chance to see our Sue.
Offer valid December 5-11, 2017. Simply present your driver’s license or ID at the Admissions Deck. Kids can show anything that has their name, including a report card, school ID, etc. Free admission valid for the person named Sue.
And when you’re here, don’t forget to take a SueSelfie and use the hashtag #SueMeetSue.
It’s an amazing exhibition. You’ll be in for a nice Sue-prise.
