Tyrannosaurs: Meet the FamilyExhibit on Display June 8 – September 1, 2019

What has 60 razor-sharp teeth, bone-crushing jaws, lived 68 million years ago and will be visiting The Durham Museum this summer? Tyrannosaurus rex…arguably the world’s most popular dinosaur!

Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family is the world’s first exhibition showcasing the newly-revised tyrannosaur family tree and shows how this group became the world’s top predators with their massive skulls, powerful jaws and bone-crunching teeth. While the most famous member of this family was the mighty T. rex, tyrannosaurs came in all shapes and sizes.

Using cutting-edge technology, this innovative, multimedia experience features more than 10 life-sized dinosaur specimens on display, including one of the oldest tyrannosaurs, Guanlong wucaii. With a dramatic array of fossils and casts of tyrannosaur specimens, Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family provides a snapshot of dinosaur life. The exhibition was created by the Australia Museum and toured internationally by Flying Fish.
