Big things are coming to the Museum this March. In fact, the biggest, most ferocious predator of all time takes the spotlight in our newest special exhibition, T. rex: The Ultimate Predatoropening Monday, March 11, about the entire tyrannosaur superfamily and the amazing story of the most iconic dinosaur in the world. Members see it free and first during Member Preview Days, March 8–10!

Also this month, the day budding naturalists wait for all year: Identification Day. In conjunction with the T. rex: The Ultimate Predator, visitors will have a chance to discover other predatory species through specimens from the Museum’s collections. Scientists will also be on hand to identify shells, rocks, and artifacts you’ve collected. 

And mark your calendars for two can’t-miss social events for adults. Stop by SciCafe to learn about the pitfalls of processing food, and join us on Neuroscience Night for an exploration of how human brains compare to those of other animals.
