Dinosaurs as museum galleries

Over the past 30 plus years if you were driving west on Interstate 10 in Southern California, US, you would have seen Dinny the Dinosaur – a 150-foot-long recreation of an apatosaurus. To be fair you could not miss the self styled  “World’s biggest dinosaur.” Along with his ‘brother’ a 65-foot-long Tyrannosaurus Rex counterpart called “Mr. Rex”, this makes up a desert roadside attraction known as the Cabazon Dinosaurs.

So why post now if it has been there for 35 years – well rather randomly Dinny now houses a creationist museum in its abdomen. It is certainly ‘different’. It’s not the concept of a creationist museum that rocks our world you understand, but the fact it is in a dinosaurs belly.
