  Say "Hello" to Sue
by worldglobetrotter

Perhaps the most popular and most well-visited display is Sue, the world's largest, most complete, and best preserved Tyrannosaurus Rex.

In addition to providing interactive permanent exhibits, professional symposia and lectures, the museum also presents numerous long-term special exhibits.

For example, the Underground Adventure features giant-scale replicas of life underground; "Sue" teaches us about the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex ever discovered; and Masks: Faces of Culture features masks from all over the world throughout history.
