T-Rex in Berlin

5 December 2015-5 December 2018

The Museum of Natural History welcomes all 12 metres of Tristan, the world’s best preserved Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton and the only one on display in Europe.

TRISTAN is one of the world’s best-preserved Tyrannosaurus rex specimens, and it’s on its way to Berlin. Research on the original skull will begin immediately after arrival, involving the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, Leibniz Institute for Evolution and Biodiversity Research with its own team of scientists. These will work in close connection with partners in science and research, as well as industry and public institutions. From December 2015, the original skeleton will be shown to the public for the first time in a special exhibition. Housing the only original T. rex skeleton in Europe at the time will be a new milestone in the exhibition history of the Museum. The research team will contribute and present its results incrementally during the exhibition.
