It’s now time to get to know her. The exhibition includes 6 interactive displays to help you understand the work of the palaeontologists. A further 6 interactive displays allow you to learn more about the paleobiology of the T. rex in general.

Especially designed for children aged 5 and above, this is a treat for all dinosaur fans!
