ST. LOUIS – SUE: The T. rex Experience opens this Saturday at the Saint Louis Science Center and will run through mid-September. The exhibit will feature several installments and experiences, including SUE, a Tyrannosaurus rex skeletal replica measuring 40 feet long and 13 feet tall.

When viewing SUE’s skeleton, guests will be led through a narrative, multi-media light show explaining different aspects of her skeleton.

A triceratops and a full-sized replica of an Edmontosaurus battling SUE will also be featured.

The exhibit will provide opportunities for guests to experience smelling a dinosaur’s breath, touching a dinosaur’s or mammal’s fur, and also hearing a T. rex roar.

Real fossils will also be featured, such as a T. rex rib and a triceratops skull, and it will even include a map of the site where SUE was excavated in the 1990s.

Tickets are required to enter and can be purchased at the Saint Louis Science Center website. Tickets are $12 for adults (ages 13-59), $8 for children (ages 5-12), and seniors (ages 60 and older.) If you are a Science Center member, tickets are only $6. Children ages 4 and under are free.
