Sue the T. Rex at Denver Museum of Nature & Science [Past exhibit]

Sue the T.Rex at Denver Museum of Nature and Science

It feels like only yesterday that we saw the SUE the T. rex exhibit at Denver Museum of Nature & Science (DMNS). The exhibit was at the museum from February 12, 2021 to April 25, 2021.

The SUE exhibit is no longer at the museum. 

I was going through our pictures from past trips to the museums and came across some from this exhibit. They were too good not to share with you! I think this exhibit is an excellent example of how awesome the museum is. This was a special exhibit that had an additional cost in addition to admission, but it was well worth it.

About the Exhibit

SUE the T. rex was on loan from the Field Museum in Chicago. 

There were more than 20 specimens from the museum in this exhibit.

About SUE

SUE measured 40 feet from snout to tail and 13 feet tall at the hip.

SUE is known to be the most complete and best-preserved Tyrannosaurus to be discovered so far.

Why is the dinosaur’s name Sue? It was discovered by Sue Hendrickson.

Where is sue now?

I was hoping SUE was still roaming around Colorado somewhere. The dinosaur is back at the Field Museum in Chicago.

The current exhibit is Bugs. The exhibit reveals the secrets of insects and arthropods. There are interactive exhibits, hands-on games, and interesting facts. The exhibit will be at the museum until August 27, 2023. Visit the Temporary Exhibit page to see what the most current exhibit is.
