Piece by piece, watch this T-rex get assembled at a Boise science center
A life-size cast of Sue, the largest and most complete skeleton of a T.rex found to date, has been holding court at the Discovery Center of Idaho since January. How time flies. Even for a T.rex. Sue’s last day in Boise is Sunday, May 7. Visitors will be able to get a sense of Sue’s Cretaceous environment 67 million years ago through interactive exhibits and wonder at the size of the skeleton, more than 40 feet from nose to tail.

10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays; noon to 5 p.m. Sundays; extended hours on May 3 and 5, when closing will be at 8 p.m. Discovery Center of Idaho, 131 Myrtle St., Boise. $12 for ages 2 to 17, $15 for veterans and active military, $16 for 18 and older, free for younger than 2; Sundays: $9 for kids, $12 for military and $13 for adults.
