Museum of Jurassic Technology

Description

A self-proclaimed "educational institution dedicated to the advancement of knowledge and the public appreciation of the Lower Jurassic," the Museum of Jurassic Technology is a captivating, albeit rather mind-boggling, assemblage of dioramas and displays that seeks to mirror for modern eyes the eclectic collections exhibited in the Wonder Cabinets of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Permanent exhibits housed behind this Culver City storefront include "Megoloaponera Foetens: The Stink Ant of Cameroon," "The Deprong Mori of the Tripiscum Plateau" (a solid block of lead supposedly encasing the body of a bat that flew straight into it), intricate fruit-stone carvings, and a horn that grew from the head of Mary Davis of Saughall. You're sure to come away puzzled: Do they really believe this stuff, or is it just a grand but lovingly executed hoax? Is this place for real?
