    Field Museum

    Chicago’s iconic Field Museum dinosaur, Sue the T-Rex, will be taken apart next week to make way for the world’s largest dinosaur ever discovered.

    Officials announced that starting on Feb. 5, Sue will be dismantled and relocated from Stanley Field Hall to The Griffin Halls of Evolving Planet floor.

    The new dinosaur said to take the up-and-coming spotlight in June, is a titanosaurs found in Argentina and believed to be 102 million years old.

    The dinosaur is a cast made from the fossil bones of a giant, long-necked herbivore from Argentina that’s part of a group of dinosaurs called titanosaurs, officials said. From snout to tail, it stretches 122 feet long, longer than two accordion CTA buses end-to-end.

    The Field Museum will be offering free admission to Illinois resident throughout the entire month of February.
