If we’re to believe Johnny Cash, “life ain’t easy for a boy named Sue.” Starting Monday, though, it’s getting a little easier—and not just for the boys. In honor of the exhibition Animals: Machines in Motion, the San Diego Natural History Museum is offering free admission to anyone named Sue, or a variation of it (we’re looking at you, Susans and Susannas).
Why? To meet Sue the dinosaur!
Sue herself, on loan from the Field Museum in Chicago, is one of the exhibition’s main attractions. The life-size replica of the largest Tyrannosaurus rex ever discovered is 13 feet tall and 42 feet long—and she makes the perfect backdrop for a #SueMeetSue selfie. Other exhibit highlights include interactives for kids, real specimens, and life-like models exploring the natural engineering of animals.
Sues get free admission December 5-11 (just bring your ID). For those without a namesake dinosaur, Animals: Machines in Motion is open until January 2, 2017.
