Finding Sue at The Field Museum, Chicago Illinois

Sue the T-Rex

For my first solo trip I went to South Dakota back in 2012. While I was there I stopped in Hill City, specifically at the Museum at Black Hills Institute. I had mistakenly heard that Sue, the most complete T-Rex fossil ever found, was housed there. Although she was there at one time, she had since been moved to The Field Museum in Chicago. The Black Hills Institute had Stan, a smaller, yet still impressive T-Rex on display.  Not to make Stan feel bad or anything, but I left the museum a little sad that I had missed Sue.
