Dinosaur Discovery Museum
The Dinosaur Discovery Museum is situated in Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA. The museum is dedicated to the explication and exploration of the relationship between ancient biped dinosaurs that were carnivorous and modern birds. The ancient dinosaurs depicted here are the theropods –including the Archaeopteryx, Carnotaurus, and Tyrannosaurus rex. The link has been particularly well depicted in the fossil record. The museum tends to feature the largest collection of skeletal cast of theropods (carnivorous) dinosaurs in the United States of America.
It is the only museum that aims at focusing on a gallery especially on the evolution of birds from the category of non-avian dinosaurs. Moreover, there is also the presence of a smaller gallery that focuses on the Little Clint –a 3-year-old Tyrannosaurus. It was discovered after a major project by the Carthage Institute of Paleontology.
The Dinosaur Discovery Museum is known to welcome school groups for delivering guided tours to the young minds. The programs here remain well-suited for school children. The live educational tours or discussions are organized by the professionals in the museum and last for around 35 to 40 minutes. Moreover, these discussions could be modified for fitting the specific age ranges and background knowledge of the given group.
The Dinosaur Discovery Museum is also home to the Carthage Museum of Paleontology. The institute is responsible for conducting field explorations along with students from the given Carthage College as well as volunteers on BLM (Bureau of Land Management). The fossils at the museum are situated at the museum and undergo cleaning at the preparatory laboratory. This is because it is a federal repository. During the season of the year 2006, the group was successful in discovering the remains of the youngest ever Tyrannosaurus rex in addition to ceratopsian and hadrosaur bones.
