Meet the most feared and revered of all dinosaurs in this cutting-edge exhibition, bringing the latest tyrannosaur discoveries to life.

While the most famous of the species is the mighty T rex, tyrannosaurs came in all shapes and sizes, and their history extends over 100 million years.

This exhibition explores the tyrannosaur family tree, revealing how they evolved from carnivores little bigger than people to massive top predators, and looks at how exciting new discoveries are challenging what we know about these dinosaurs.

Exhibits include rare fossil specimens, incredible models of feathered tyrannosaurs, and life-size cast skeletons including ‘Scotty’, one of the largest and most complete T rex skeletons in the world.

Through an augmented reality experience and large-scale projections, visitors can interact with life-size dinosaurs in real time inside the gallery, and walk side by side with T rex and other tyrannosaurs as they explore Edinburgh.
