Mark your calendars for 28 June 2024, because that's when Victoria the T. rex roars into Melbourne Museum. This isn't just any dinosaur exhibition; it's a world-class, interactive journey that'll whisk you away to the Cretaceous period. With cutting-edge tech and the latest palaeontological insights, you're in for a deep dive into the life and times of Victoria.

Discovered in South Dakota in 2013, Victoria the T. rex is a true survivor of the ancient world, boasting a skeleton of 199 bones, stretching over 12 metres long and standing tall at 3.6 metres. After a stint in the Dino Lab in Victoria, British Columbia (where she got her name!), she's all set to stun Australia with her well-preserved, 66-million-year-old bones.
