We’ve been doing a lot of fun activities with my sister’s family in town this week. Our latest adventure was to a local dinosaur museum. It’s small but has some interesting displays. It also is a great place to get out of the afternoon heat and spend an hour or two trying to convince your kids that this kind of experience is actually enjoyable.
One of the exhibits was an earthquake simulator. It was one of those platforms that moves around while you stand on it and stare at pictures of earthquake destruction on the wall. I didn’t read any of the signs associated with the simulator so I still have no idea why there was one at a dinosaur museum.
One of the worst (or best, depending on how you look at it) exhibits was a giant animated model of a T-Rex ripping the head of another dinosaur off its body. I’m of the opinion that the neck wouldn’t tear like that. That guy’s teeth would have severed it where it bit. But what do I know? I’m no paleontartist.
