About T. rex in Town

The 66-million-year-old fossil of the carnivorous dinosaur was found in Montana, USA  in 2013 and is the centrepiece of this major exhibition supplied by Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden, Netherlands. Trix is the only original skeleton of a T. rex currently touring anywhere in the world and one of the three most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex skeletons in the world.

As well as having an opportunity to see one of the Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton you can learn more about how dinosaurs lived through amazing interactive displays. Find out more about Trix’s turbulent life from the information revealed by her bones, based on recent findings by an international research team of palaeontologists and geologists and look out for our events programme which will run throughout the exhibition period. 

There are also amazing interactive displays where you can try your hand at digging for fossils, have a go at designing your own T.rex and even dance like a dino!

For the Scottish leg of Trix’s tour there will also be fossilized dinosaur footprints on display, found on our very own Isle of Skye 

A bespoke exhibition shop is open 7 days a week, stocking an array of items suitable for Dino fans, young and old. After the exhibition relax in our Dino-themed cafe area with delicious street food from the Big Feed.
