CHICAGO (WLS) -- Sue the T. Rex has a new home! The Field Museum unveiled the new 5,100-square-foot facility on the second floor on Tuesday.

Sue was dismantled in February and moved there bone by bone from Stanley Hall over the last year. "Maximo" the titanosaur took over the spot where Sue stood for the last 18 years.
