A T.REX Called SUE

Today we went to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science to have a look at the T.Rex Encounter Exhibition. We were really impressed with the exhibition, and really enjoyed the life size computerised dinosaurs that interacted with both sound and movement.

The exhibition focused on a dinosaur called Sue - a T.Rex named after the lady who discovered the fossil of the skeleton in 1996. No dinosaur in the world compares to Sue, as she is the largest, most complete and best preserved T.Rex ever discovered.

We thoroughly enjoyed the double feature at the Imax located in the museum that explained all about dinosaurs and how paleontologists work. Max exclaimed, "Oh my God..." regularly throughout the films. It was the best 3d experience we have had - especially the fight scenes.

We also viewed some of the other exhibits at the museum and were especially impressed with the taxidermy. Below are some of the amazing examples of the displays.

Unfortunately, to leave the Imax you had no choice but to walk through the centre of the exhibit shop. When we said that we would not be buying anything Max started an epic tantrum that lasted well after we arrived home. We are determined to not give into tantrums!
