T. rex: The Killer Question

T. rex: The Killer Question

The Natural History Museum's touring exhibition will be on display in the New Building at Peterborough Cathedral

About the exhibition

The exhibition poses the question, was  T. rex a ferocious hunter or a mere scavenger? Could it have been something in between – an opportunist and an ambush predator relying on easy pickings?

The exhibition encourages visitors to look closer at T. rex – its size, the power in its legs, the length of its arms, the sharpness of its teeth, its keen sense of smell – and how they think the animal lived. Was its physique best suited to catching and slaughtering live prey or to stealing carcasses?

This entertaining and engaging exhibition for the entire family presents the fossil evidence, scientific interpretations, and exciting scenes with lifelike animatronics to challenge what we know about the real T. rex.

The exhibition will be on show in the New Building at the east end of the Cathedral. Entry will be by ticket only, and these will go on sale in the new year. You can see some of the dinosaurs featured in the exhibition in the pictures below.
