This legendary dinosaur ravaged the Earth 66 million years ago and is now the star of the exhibition ‘King of Dinosaurs’ at the Natural History Museum of Denmark. This is the first time that a real T. rex has set foot on Danish soil, and through Tristan Otto and five other unique dinosaur fossils, the story of Earth’s past, present and future unfolds. Learn more about the relationship between predators and prey and how the dinosaurs evolved to become better hunters or avoid being eaten. Meet some of the killers that rule today, and see what superpowers unite history’s most successful predators.

Visit the museum shop to bring home a piece of the experience and recharge in the café with a view of the Botanical Garden. Avoid lines and sold-out dates by booking a time slot and buying your ticket in advance at www.tristan-otto. dk. A ticket for ‘King of Dinosaurs’ also includes a visit to the Botanical Garden’s Palm House and the Zoological Museum in Østerbro within 48 hours.
