The National Museum of Natural History announced today that a nearly complete Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton has arrived in Washington, D.C. Called the Nation’s T. rex, it will be the centerpiece of the museum’s new 31,000-square-foot dinosaur and fossil hall, which is slated to open in 2019. The current dinosaur and fossil hall will close to the public at the end of the day April 27 in preparation for the largest, most extensive exhibition renovation in the museum’s history.
