Overview

Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family

U.S. Premiere – September 30, 2017 - Science Center of Iowa & Blank IMAX Dome Theater

 If you think you know T. rex… think again.

 Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family explores the most feared and revered of all dinosaurs in new and different ways.

While the most famous is the mighty T. rex, tyrannosaurs came in all shapes and sizes and from all over the globe, and their history goes back over 100 million years. New tyrannosaurs like the crested Guanlong from China will change and challenge our understanding of the evolution of these iconic, well-loved dinosaurs.

The exhibition’s specimens are not only spectacular in scale and form, but also reveal some of the most significant discoveries in paleontology over the past decade.Tyrannosaurs offers visitors a look at rare and magnificent real fossils but also reconstructs the life-sized skeletons of these terrifying carnivores like you’ve never seen before.

Exhibit includes:

  • 5 complete tyrannosaur cast skeletons
  • A collection of real fossils
  • A video projection tunnel showing life-sized dinosaurs running amok in Des Moines
  • Digital screens featuring computer animated creatures and layered content
  • And more!
