Burpee Museum celebrates Jane's birthday

ROCKFORD (WREX) - The Burpee Museum is celebrating a special birthday for its famous T-Rex.

Jane has been with the museum for ten years. Throughout this week the museum is offering special daily programming.  The week long celebration ends Saturday when there will be a special showing of the Discovery Channel documentary on Jane as well as presentations from some Jane experts. 

According to the museum, Jane has always been a crowd favorite.

 "Jane is a celebrity, she's a big deal," says Burpee Director of Science and Exhibits Scott Williams.  "We still get tons of people coming in here wanting to see her. They've read about her, they saw something in a news article, they saw "Mystery Dinosaur" and always wanted to come here. Jane is a draw and she brings people to Burpee because this is the only place you can see the real Jane."

The museum says Jane will be sporting a birthday hat this weekend.  All of Saturday's events are included in the full museum admission.
