Help bring the prehistoric world alive at the Museum at Prairiefire. 

 We are grateful for your decision to support the Museum at Prairiefire through the Barnum Brown Society "Adopt a T. rex" program! Once you explore the options for adoption, please call, send an email or fill out the form below so we can process your adoption request in person. Once you have made your selection and we have completed your T. rex fossil adoption, your name will be entered into the official Barnum Brown Society Founders Registry with a copy of your stamped certificate.
