TBWCYL Day 213 - Morning at the Museum

"Everyone has a favorite dinosaur." said The Book. "Go to your local natural history museum and make sure yours is properly represented." Well, it wasn't. I like the brontosaurus and there was only a picture of it. They had skeletal frames of:

The pterodactyl
The Tyrannosaurus Rex

The Triceratops

I have to say, even though the lack of long necks was missing, the Natural History museum in Dallas is freakin' sweet. They had a ton of mechanical exhibits, a section completely on the human body including a piece on vomiting with working vomit machine, and an awesome section for kids on the life of your backyard that included many things you would find in most.
I have never had a want to go to the museum but by the end I was extremely pleased and want to go back. They also had a special exhibit on the science of spying but I didn't have time to do it.

Science rocks.

That is all,

I think longnecks are in short supply still. They are all still on set for "Land Before Time 824"!

I wondered if anyone would get that reference. I am proud of you sir.

You should check out the Science Museum at Covent Gardens in London some time, you'd love it, they've made it a really interactive and tactile experience, the Science Museum is what made me fall in love with science.

I totally didn't get that reference ... is it a boy thing?

No, if you didn't see The Land Before Time then you might not get it.
