Witness the world’s first anatomically correct model of a T.rex – six months and 10,000 hours in the making. Our resident dinosaur expert ask visitors to help uncover the mystery surrounding the death of this fabulous dinosaur which will also reveal how the 65 million year-old-beast lived.

Originally seen on the National Geographic documentary T.rex Autopsy, this 13-metre dinosaur goes where no fossil or Jurassic World blockbuster could. You'll see its heart, liver, lungs, stomach, intestines and ovaries as well as muscles, veins and even blood! 

Approximately 20 minutes duration, followed by question time.
