Notes for a future road trip: MJT

I love museums, especially natural history museums. The highlight of my day in Oxford, several years ago, was the Ashmolean, with its geological specimens, stuffed dodo (the model for Tenniel’s illustration in Alice in Wonderland), and other curiosities.

While catching up with my pile of not-yet-read magazines, I discovered an article on unusual American museums in the June issue of the Smithsonian magazine. The first museum the article mentions is The Museum of Jurassic Technology.

The online exhibits definitely have the flavor of the older Ashmolean exhibits, and the photos in the Smithsonian article reinforce that impression. The MJT is definitely going on my list for a future trip to southern California!
