Science Museum

Beatrix and I went to the Science Museum of Virginia today. They have a dinosaur exhibit that we both wanted to see.

Before we went to the dinosaur exhibit we went through the permanent exhibits...

Learning about the phases of the moon.

The dinosaur exhibit — appropriately named "Dinosaur" — was pretty cool but it was not very big. We liked it but I'm glad we didn't have to pay extra for it.

"Hey..."

The life-sized triceratops was pretty cool. He was automated and we got to see him — Or her? I didn't look under its kilt — munching leaves and heard him roaring.

Skull, obvs.

Beatrix and I enjoyed going to the local science museum but I think she would really like to visit the Smithsonian sometime for a better museum experience.

At least we got some astronaut ice cream out of it.
