......in the Natural History Museum anyway. Don't think I've every visited this museum before, my loss, and apart from the exhibits there is some stunning architecture inside and out. There is an animatronic Tyrannosaurus Rex in the Dinosaur Hall that goes through a 5 minute movement and light show routine that the visiting school kids thoroughly enjoyed although one or two of them could be seen hiding behind their teachers. If any one thinks there is a lot of dust on the aeroplanes hanging from the rafters in museums, I don't thing the Whale Skeletons hanging from the ceiling in the Mammals Hall have seen a feather duster since they were installed.

Me too!. Always remember as a kid entering the main hall to see an Elephant next to a small sphere containing a dwarf shrew.
Two extremes from the animal kingdom.

Speaking of Dinosaurs in unexpected places....
A few years ago I was in Indianapolis for a vintage car meet at the famed race track and this caught my eye while driving down the road.
Rather startling....
It's the Indianapolis Children's Museum. If that doesn't get the attention of the little ones, nothing will.
