Pavilion Spotlight: Visit Sue During the Holiday Season

Posted: Updated:

You can have your very own "Night At the Museum" this holiday season at the Washington Pavilion's Kirby Science Center.

"It's cold outside, but it's warm inside. So, it's a good place for kids to wear out their energy for those who are out of schools. Feel free to come on by," said floor coordinator Holly Kelly.

40 feet long and 17 feet tall, Sue will call the Pavilion home until January 5th.

So far, more than 13,500 people have checked out this awesome specimen.

"A lot of people are really impressed with the size, how big she is. A lot of kids are interested in seeing the teeth on Sue at the front of the exhibit," said Kelly.

From ages two to 82, Sue is an exhibit you don't want to miss. There's even an accompanying film at the CineDome that talks about Sue's life and how fossils are found.

"Kids of all ages love it. We've had some great really little toddlers come in that are just super fascinated by being able to see Sue and how big she is," said Kelly. "A lot of those kids love dinosaurs any ways, so it's great for them to see a dinosaur so close that's so big."
