2015 – Tyrant Kings Exhibit Opens at Museum of the Rockies
On this day in dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus took center stage in Bozeman, Montana at the Museum of the Rockies. The Tyrant Kings exhibit showcases the world’s premier collection of Tyrannosaurus rex fossils, including an authentic fossil skeleton that’s 40 feet long.
Another highlight of the exhibit is a T. rex skull growth series, showing how the animal grew and changed as it aged. It’s a reminder of how dynamic the lives of these long extinct animals were. The exhibit is a window into the Hell Creek Formation at the very end of the age of dinosaurs–just before the non-avian dinosaurs met their fate.
