Now the big build is complete and Kelvin Hall is ready to welcome the public to the T. rex in Town exhibition from Thursday 18 April.
With ferocious teeth and short arms, the Tyrannosaurus rex is probably the most well-known dinosaur in the world.
The 66 to 67-million-year-old T. rex female is 39-foot long, around 13 feet high and weighs a colossal 5,000 kg.
The iconic dinosaur has spent the last year touring European countries as part of an interactive and educational exhibition, T. rex in Town, which explains the story of her life and discovery of her skeleton.
She is currently the only real T. rex on tour in the world while her museum in the Netherlands is being redeveloped. Over a million people have already visited the exciting interactive exhibition across Europe.
Trix will be in Glasgow for 15 weeks until 31 July 2019. The T. rex’s visit to Glasgow’s Kelvin Hall is the only city in UK or Ireland to be visited by Trix. After her Scottish stop off she will return to Naturalis Biodiversity Center in her home city of Leiden, in the Netherlands. Once her visit to Glasgow is finished it is unlikely she will go on tour again.
Trix is a unique find. With almost 80 percent of bone volume found, she ranks in the top three T. rex skeletons in the world. Trix is a five-tonne, 39ft (12 metres) long female T. rex whose extremely well-preserved skeleton was discovered in Montana, USA in 2013.
Tickets for the major dinosaur attraction and interactive exhibition are available now https://kelvinhall.org.uk/trex/, Tickets £14 / £8, family ticket £39.50. Concessions are also available.
