Established in 1941, the Burpee Museum of Natural History is the home of "Jane," the world's best preserved and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex, and "Homer", a teen-aged Triceratops, and is one of the preeminent mid-sized natural history museums in the nation. Its mission is to inspire all people to engage in a lifetime of discovery and learning about our natural world, through preservation and interpretation. Burpee Museum also offers a number of different summer camps from June through July for ages 4-12.
