A life-size Tyrannosaurus Rex model was recently gifted to the Australian Museum (AM) by the international mega-company National Geographic. While such additions to a collection are wonderful news, in this case it also represented one very large problem.
‘You can solve any problem – it just takes a little more thought,’ said CEO and Director AM, Kim McKay.
