March 2 - September 8, 2024

Tyrannosaurs – Meet the Family brings the latest tyrannosaur discoveries to life, overturning preconceptions about these ferocious predators. The exhibition explores the most feared and revered of all dinosaurs in new and different ways.  

The exhibition’s real and replica specimens are not only spectacular in scale and form, but also reveal some of the most significant discoveries in paleontology of the past decade. Tyrannosaurs offers visitors a look at rare and magnificent fossils, reconstructing the life-sized skeletons of these terrifying carnivores in unique ways. 

Featuring three life-sized tyrannosaur skeletons, real fossil bones from one of the first T. rex skeletons, and a 30-foot tunnel where you can watch tyrannosaurs exploring modern-day Portland—you won’t want to miss this unique dinosaur exhibit.
