the barnum brown SOCIETY

Help bring the prehistoric world alive at the Museum at Prairiefire by joining The Barnum Brown Society! Your unique membership will provide the support needed to make our MISSION a reality:

To inspire a love for natural history and STEM through a deeper exposure to the fields of paleontology and geology to children, young adults and adults, especially those with limited resources, through meaningful programming, education, artifacts, exhibits, and interactive discovery.

ADOPT A T. rex

Adopt one of Tyrannosaurus rex's fossils and your membership to The Barnum Brown Society is official! When you adopt a T. rex fossil at the MAP, you will belong to a very exclusive club as the only person, family or company with adoption rights to that particular fossil. You will be recognized as a Founding Member of The Barnum Brown Society and receive an official certificate signed by University of Kansas paleontologist Dr. David Burnham. You, your family, or company will be featured in a permanent interactive display of The Barnum Brown Society's "Adopt a T. rex" program inside the Great Hall.  Adoptions will go fast, click HERE to view availability.
