Oh give me a home…where the dinosaurs roam…

Our local newspaper recently published a story about the UW Geological Museum in Laramie and according to the article, the museum is being shut down due to budget cuts. I had never even heard of the museum, so I looked up their website and discovered the have a nice collection of dinosaur skeletons, fossils, etc. so I knew I had to take Vaughan to see it before the museum is closed on July 1st.

It’s really too bad that they are shutting it down. It was a fun trip and Vaughan really enjoyed all the dinosaurs. Wyoming has a great fossil history and many impressive fossilized skeletons have been found here. I have learned a lot about dinosaurs in recent months due to Vaughan’s interest in them and this museum offered a great deal of interesting information.

There’s talk about a group of people who want to try and raise the money necessary to keep the museum open, so we’ll see what happens. I think it would be a great thing if they could get it done because I know we would go back to visit again if we had the opportunity.
