About the Boston Museum of Science:

Dinosaurs used to be a fairly small part of what the Boston Museum of Science had to offer--but that small part is now appreciably bigger, thanks to the museum's recent acquisition of "Triceratops Cliff." This near-complete Triceratops fossil was put up for auction at Christie's early in 2008 and bought for a million dollars by an anonymous bidder, who promptly donated it to the museum on the condition that it be named "Cliff" (after the buyer's grandfather).

Triceratops Cliff will have good company. The Boston Museum of Science’s "Dinosaurs: Modeling the Mesozoic" gallery features a huge reconstruction of T. Rex, which has been reposed according to the latest findings by paleontologists (the museum says its model is based on evidence from 30 separate T. Rex fossils). As with T. Rex, the other skeletons on display in this museum demonstrate how dinosaur science isn't set in stone, but is constantly changing with each new fossil discovery.
