The Smithsonian’s Museum of Natural History is the second-most visited museum in the world. But later this month, one of the star attractions – its dinosaur hall – will close for a five-year renovation project. Meanwhile, the museum has procured a one of the most complete Tyrannosaurus rex skeletons ever discovered, which will be featured for decades to come. Kirk Johnson, the museum’s director, joins Kojo in the studio – fresh off a trip to Montana to oversee the delivery of the new T. rex to Washington.
