We are excited to announce our collaboration with HTC VIVE STUDIOS and American Museum of Natural History – one of the world’s preeminent scientific, cultural, and educational institutions, on their new T. rex: The Ultimate Predator exhibit.
The exhibition, which will be open to the public from March 11, 2019, to August 9, 2020, features the museum’s first multiplayer, interactive VR experience in addition to life-sized reconstructions of T. rex at various life stages—including the most scientifically accurate representation of T. rex to date, fossils and casts, large-scale projections, and hands-on interactives to tell the amazing story of the iconic dinosaur.
T rex: The Ultimate Predator is the first major exhibition of the American Museum of Natural History’s 150th-anniversary celebration. The first T. rex skeleton was discovered in 1902 by the Museum’s legendary fossil hunter, Barnum Brown, and the Museum boasts one of the few original specimens of T. rex on public display in the Hall of Saurischian Dinosaurs. With more than 120 years of dinosaur research and discovery, the Museum continues to be a leader in this field. Thanks to our work and collaboration with HTC VIVE, the Museum adds a new dimension to this legacy with the exhibition’s virtual reality experience, T. rex: Skeleton Crew.
Here are some of the press reviews of the new exhibit in AMNH!
