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!
Please note: January 8, 2018 through February 2018, there may be days when the T. rex LIVE exhibit is closed to the public for exhibit updates and renovations. Specific closure dates will be listed here in early December.
