Note: T. rex specimen prep will be limited to one window during the refresh of Testing, Testing 1-2-3: Work in Progress exhibit, but will be back in full view starting February 2, 2018. 

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. 

Watch "live" as Burke paleontologists carefully expose the skull of this incredible 66-million-year-old beast. More and more of the skull will be exposed each week, so come back often to watch the progress!

Membership at the Burke includes unlimited museum visits to see T. rex. Join today!
