Testing, Testing 1-2-3 exhibit gallery
Something BIG is happening at the Burke! Last summer, Burke paleontologists discovered a Tyrannosaurus rex—including a 3,000-lb skull, only the 15th ever discovered. The skull came to the Burke wrapped in plaster to protect it, but now it's time for the big reveal.
Watch the process "live" in our new Testing, Testing 1-2-3 exhibit, as Burke paleontologists carefully expose the skull of this incredible, 66-million-year-old beast.
More and more of the skull will be exposed as Burke paleontologists work, so come back often to watch the progress!
Membership at the Burke includes unlimited museum visits to see T. rex. Join today!
Testing, Testing 1-2-3: Work in Progress will be closed January 8 – February 1, 2018 to refresh the gallery and will reopen to the public of Friday, February 2. During this time, views of the T. rex specimen prep will be limited to one window.
