Sue the Dinosaur Finds a New Home in Chicago

A decade after the discovery of the oldest, largest and most complete tyrannosaurus rex fossil ever found, the t-rex named Sue made its debut in Chicago. The trip wasn’t an easy one from where Sue was discovered in South Dakota to her permanent home at Chicago’s Field Museum. With disputes over the land where Sue was found, it took an 18 month legal battle before the court awarded ownership. That same owner sold Sue at an auction where The Field Museum paid $7.6 million for the historic discovery in 1997. Three years later, on May 17, 2000, Sue made her worldwide debut.
