A Visit to the UC Museum of Paleontology


The UC Museum of Paleontology is a great place. It is only open one day a year to the public. The rest of the time it is a research museum. I got to visit it on that single day it was open:

Smilodon (Saber tooth cat) skull
Smilodon (Saber tooth cat) skeleton with a modern house cat skeleton under it
Edmontosaurus annectans (duck-billed dinosaur) skull
Triceratops Skull
Got to love the Terachdyal
And the star of the museum:

T-Rex

The UC Museum of Paleontology is a great place. Just wish it was open more.

  1. Only once a year?!? That is indeed way too little. It has been ages since I last went to a museum but I really love it! #blogbooster3

  5. Museum trips can be so rewarding, not to mention both little ones and adults can learn and have so much fun.

    1. You are welcome. It is research museum for the UC system. That is why it is only open once a year.
