Tyrannosaurus rex Skull Replica

This Tyrannosaurus rex skull replica can be found at the Adventure Science Center in Nashville, Tennessee. A great science center for kids and if you are a science center and museum aimed at kids, it is a good idea to have some dinosaurs. The dinosaur exhibit is small and located on the second floor. Besides this replica they have some animatronics of three dinosaurs to look at. A little interactive quiz on which creatures are dinosaurs as well is included in the exhibit.

The T. rex was a dinosaur of the Cretaceous Period in its waning years (68-65 million years ago).

For adults, the most interesting part of the center is the astronomy section. The center has some really nice technology showing how the solar system works. Their educational display on the wavelengths of light is great.
