In fact, the “other things” list is pretty extensive and goes beyond the museum collections.
But let’s start with the collections. The permanent collection houses fossils of dinosaurs and prehistoric beasts, including a full-sized Gorgosaurus, which, to those of us non-paleontologists looks just like a T-rex. It is massive and it is amazing. In the words of one recent five-year-old visitor, “WHOA!” Yeah. Whoa. It doesn’t matter how old you are, a massive dinosaur is always awesome.
