Tyra the T-Rex

For almost 30 years, the Pink Palace has been home to Rollo, the talking and stomping robotic triceratops.  Rollo came to us in 1983.  Today Rollo is 150 in rubber dinosaur years and no longer performs, but he is still with us, alongside our new animatronic T-Rex named Tyra!  Tyra will entertain Museum visitors for years, watching, roaring and tail wagging.  When you come see Tyra, check the foliage around her and you just might catch a glimpse of Rollo, who is still a Pink Palace favorite!

The Pink Palace Family of Museums occasionally places links to other websites on its own.  This is done as part of our mission to "inspire learning."  It is not an endorsement of the information or viewpoints you will find on the linked websites.

Our staff recommends the following links on the Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex.
