Burke Museum University District
Aug. 12-13 2017
Did you know that the Burke has been squirreling away a 2,500 pound tyrannosaurus braincase for the past year? This specimen is only the 15th t. rex skull ever discovered. This weekend, Burke scientists will be freeing their bony friend from its plaster protections. Watch t. rex's emergence from its shell, hear talks at 12:30 and 2 pm on fossil preparation and excavation, and let your kids unleash their creativity with dino crafts.
