Have you heard the roars yet? We’ve had an overwhelming response to our visiting T.rex puppet Scotty!
We are really lucky that Scotty has been able to visit us to help promote our forthcoming exhibition, Tyrannosaurs – Meet the Family, which opens at Te Papa on September 27!
We’re hoping that many of you will get to meet Scotty when he’s out and about over the next week. Today he’s a little tired after a busy few days so is having a rest. He doesn’t like the rain much either, so we’re keeping an eye on the weather forecast before we decide exactly where he’ll go next.
Scotty has got his plane ticket booked and will be traveling back to Australia on September 22, but luckily before then we have some dates scheduled so you can plan your visit. Of course, you’ll also be able to come to Te Papa and discover lots more about the Tyrannosaur family in our extraordinary exhibition from September 27!
