Naturalis Biodiversity Center has been named European Museum of the Year 2021! In this beautiful new museum, you can find out more about everything nature has to offer. Journey through the present and past. Experience the Courtship Gallery. Meet Trix the T-Rex in the dinosaur gallery. Visit LiveScience to see how dinosaur bones are cleaned.
Trix the T-Rex
Have you always wanted to come face to face with a T-Rex? Trix and many other dinosaurs are waiting for you in our dinosaur gallery. Our dinosaur gallery has an extra high ceiling so it can house our 11-meter-tall Camarasaurus.
Meet Trix, the imposing T-Rex! Sixty-six million years ago, the earth was inhabited by dinosaurs. Imagine being able to travel back in time and running into a T-Rex… what would you do? Join in with the Rexperience and enjoy a prehistoric adventure. Track the T-Rex together and meet the real Trix!
The Rexperience is suitable for kids aged 8 and up. A visit to Naturalis is free of charge with a Netherlands Museum Pass. A small surcharge of €2 on your museum ticket gives you full access to the amazing Rexperience.
