Time Out says

The National Museum of Nature and Science is bringing back the Dino Expo following its success in 2019. This year, you’ll get to see a near-complete fossil of the armoured dinosaur Zuul Crurivastator, which is being displayed in Japan for the first time. This 76-million-year-old fossil was discovered in the United States and this is the first time it has been exhibited outside the Royal Ontario Museum in Canada.

You can also see rare carnivorous dinosaurs, including full-body reconstructions of Gorgoaurus and Maip Macrothorax as well as everyone’s favourite Tyrannosaurus Rex. At this exhibition, you can even find out more about how dinosaurs went extinct and explore the most recent findings related to these fascinating creatures.
