Dinosaur Museum in Woodland Park, Colorado

I discovered a gem in my own back yard. It is the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center.

I assumed, for 5 years, that it was just a tourist trap for people going up into the mountains after leaving Colorado Springs. It is truly is a diamond. It easily competes, regarding paleontology exhibits and information, with the Denver Museum of Natural History and they are very good. Obviously, it is not a competition for Chicago and New York museums but the exhibits are excellent. They also have a very good Charles Darwin exhibit.

  1. As an older art collector since my wife passed away, I must admit to being very partial to collecting nudes in art, as original paintings or as good prints, that I have displayed all over the house. (I like to see the surprised faces of my new visitors).
    This one,, by Emile Munier, is hanging in one corner of my bedroom and was printed by, where I am a very good customer
