Visitors to the National Dinosaur Museum will soon be able to get up close and personal with a giant Tyrannosaurus rex.
The dinosaur stands over eight metres tall and measures 20 metres in length. Tom Kapitany, a Director of the Museum, said “Canberra has never seen anything like this. Our new addition will be larger than life.”
The new exhibit comes at an exciting time for the National Dinosaur Museum as it celebrates its 25th anniversary. The Museum opened in 1993, the same year that the original Jurassic Park film was released in Australia. The release of another film in the hugely popular Jurassic World series is expected to generate stronger than usual interest in dinosaurs during the upcoming July school holiday period.
