What can I see and do at the Black Hills Museum of Natural History?
The museum is known among paleontologists as one of the best. Visit the museum and pass through many eras of prehistory, viewing fossils of reptiles, mammals, fishes, and trilobites.
Make sure to visit Stan, the Tyrannosaurus rex fossil, replays the life of this giant beast. After hatching from an egg, T. rex most likely stayed close to his parents until he was able to hunt on his own. Injuries to his skeletal structure suggest that he was involved in many battles, possibly for food and habitat.
