Remember the "Tufts-Love" T. rex skull we discovered last summer? We're ready to remove the plaster jacket and want you to be the first to see what's underneath.

Join us for a members-only morning of dinos, donuts, and updates on the dig for more T. rex. Just back from the field, Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology Greg Wilson will share what his team found at the dig site this summer and what the future holds for the fossils we already have. 

We're opening an hour early at 9 am, just for members, so you'll have a chance to check out the T. rex skull before the museum opens to the public at 10 am. Enjoy coffee, juice, and donuts in the Burke Room until 11 am. Register now!

Can’t make it to Dinos & Donuts with T. rex? Don't worry, more and more of the skull will be exposed each day as Burke paleontologists work, so come back often to watch the progress! Visit the museum during the T. rex LIVE Opening Weekend at 11 am, 12:30 and 2 pm to hear from members of the fossil preparation and excavation crews.

This event is for Burke Museum members only. Not a member? Join today!
