In 1986, the ground at the Museum shook as staff welcomed their newest member, a half-sized robotic Tyrannosaurus rex. Megamunch was the first of his kind in Canada and most people didn't know what to expect. Unlike his ferocious ancestors that lived here over 65 million years ago, he seemed to really like children (to be friends with, not to eat), greeting them with a cheerful roar each time he saw them. He is currently settled next to the Museum theatre, and usually dressed to impress. Check out Megamunch's sartorial taste during your next visit.
