Washington dinosaur exhibit brings new life to prehistoric fossils

A new exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History will house 3.7 billion years of life on Earth, and will feature one of the most intact Tyrannosaurus Rex fossils in the world.

The fossil hall at the Natural History Museum closed in 2014 in order to undergo an extensive $110 million upgrade. The 31,000 square foot exhibit is still under construction and workers are busy putting the finishing touches on the grand hall which is scheduled to open to the public on June 8, 2019.

The Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton is featured in the refurbished hall with more than 700 other specimens including plants, animals, insects and of course…..more dinosaurs. Siobhan Starrs, the project manager for the fossil hall, told Reuters visitors to the new exhibit will be “awestruck” by what they experience in the new exhibit.
