Coming Soon: SUE: The T. rex Experience – Discovery Center of Idaho

May 27 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Discovery Center is thrilled to announce the arrival of SUE: The T. rex Experience, opening May 27th, 2022. \"🎉\"
SUE the T. rex is the most complete, best-preserved Tyrannosaurus rex ever discovered. And this spring, SUE’s coming to Boise, Idaho.
Visitors will get to explore the sights, sounds, and smells of SUE\’s world, see casts of real dinosaur fossils, and come face to face with an exact cast of SUE’s skeleton measuring in at 40 feet from snout to tail and 13 feet tall at the hip.\"🦖\"
To help visualize how SUE would have looked in life, there’s an additional full-size, fleshed-out replica of a T. rex battling one of its favorite prey: the duck-billed herbivore Edmontosaurus.
Visitors will be able to see a lot more than just SUE’s skeleton, though—new interactives and digital technologies will highlight the latest scientific discoveries and show people what SUE’s world was like.
This exhibition was made possible by the generous support of the Micron Foundation.
