Life-sized T-rex rebuilt in National Museum of Scotland

Help

Staff at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh have spent six months installing nearly 8,000 objects into 16 new galleries.

About 80% of the collection has not previously been seen and the new look follows three years of major building work.

The life-sized skeleton cast of the Tyrannosaurus rex is 12m (39ft) long. The cast has been taken from one of the most complete T-rex specimens in the world which is held in the Museum of the Rockies in the United States.
