Discover the wonder of the natural world at the Burpee Museum of Natural History. Using an augmented reality viewer, place historical and natural artifacts such as a beaver skull, a T. rex claw, and a kachina doll in the real world so you can rotate, examine, and study them at scale. Place a fossil on your desk, snap a photo, and share it!
Burpee Museum of Natural History is the home of Jane, the worlds most complete and best-preserved juvenile T. rex; Homer, a teenaged Triceratops; and Pearl, a newly found Oviraptor.
Explore the paleontology collections, as well as exhibits on the history of Native Americans in North America, the wildlife of the Rock River Valley, and more.
