The name alone made me inquisitive, JURASSIC TECHNOLOGY??? As I read a blurb about it, I decided to check out the website ..... okay, this was going to be COOL! A museum full of oddities was just the ticket for my day :)
So off we went. I was expecting a museum ... a large building of some sort. After passing it a few times we discovered a small storefront partially obscured from the street by a tree. After finding parking, we walked a short distance back to that storefront and entered. Like all museums, there is a small gift shop .... but unlike other museums the gift shop was dinky and eclectic. We paid our donation and entered.
It was WONDERFUL! We wandered for a couple of hours through nooks and crannies, seeing micromosaic art works through microscopes, a display on magnets, dioramas with holographic images, two rooms on cat cradles from indigenous cultures, a serene and formal room with paintings of the Canine Cosmonauts, several little rooms of folk remedies and their histories, and so much MORE!
The very last room on the top floor is a replica of a Russian tea room - with free tea shipped in from Georgia, and little cookies :) It was a wonderful way in which to just sit and contemplate all that we had seen that day during our museum wanderings.
I can't wait to return :)
The museum is dimly lit to add to the ambience, so be cautious if you have visual impairments. Flash-free photos are permitted.
Fees: 2-5$ US Depends on age.
