Tyrannosaurus rex, meaning "tyrant lizard king," roamed the earth 65 million years ago. Now T. rex will roam the earth again, right here at Museum of the Rockies in the Siebel Dinosaur Complex.
MOR is pleased to announce a new exhibit called The Tyrant Kings, featuring Montana's T. rex. Soon to be among only a handful of museums in the world to display a fossilized T. rex skeleton, MOR's new exhibit will present one of the most spectacular specimens ever unearthed - called Montana's T. rex.
Discovered near the Fort Peck Dam and one of the most complete T. rex skeletons ever found, Montana's T. rex stands 12 feet tall and approximately 40 feet from nose to tail. It would have weighed almost seven tons as it walked the eastern regions of the state.
MOR's new exhibit will also display a series of skulls from our collections that show the growth of T. rex - from juvenile specimens to the largest T. rex skull ever discovered.
The Tyrant Kings, featuring Montana's T. rex presents the science and research of Tyrannosaurus rex in a very, very big way.
