Fossil Fridays

Come see fossil preparators at the Burke work on the spectacular Tufts-Love Rex at the upcoming Fossil Fridays event! This exceptionally well-preserved specimen represents one of only 15 mostly complete T. rex skulls ever discovered, and viewing it in person is an experience you don’t want to miss.  Visitors will have the opportunity to experience the specimen (and others!) up close, as well as speak with members of the Burke’s paleontology team. The event will take place Friday, May 25 from 12–4p.
