IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE ORIGINAL INDIAN
JONES, THE DRAGONMAN, ROY CHAPMAN ANDREWS…
If you went to an expedition to Mongolia in the 1920’s you would
find an old building surrounded by smaller buildings and tents,
many circular like the oldest constructed dwellings known to mankind,
the yurt. It would be ramshackle but solid and built with whatever
materials were on hand and lots of tin and wooden boxes. It wouldn’t
be pretty, but it would do the job. Science was the key and creature
comforts came later.
This is the new Westside T Rex Museum Expedition Center designed
for Fun For Children of All Ages. It’s not fancy, not modern, and
totally in keeping with our theme of a real expedition 1920’s Mongolian
fossil science center, but with a bit more civilization than Mr.
Andrews had, and less guns & whips.
Yes he is the model for Indiana Jones in real life (come see the
exhibit on him including real artifacts and photos and even a dinosaur
egg found in the same strata where he made that remarkable discovery).
On July 13, 1923, the party was the first in the world to discover
dinosaur eggs. Come see what they looked like.
Come see one at the New T Rex Expedition Center and DO much more.
How about a photo standing next to Metal and fiberglass replica
of a full sized Tyrannosaurs bataar or the Asian T Rex. Or a full
sized and very scary Raptor. Or lots of other Asian dinosaurs found
near where Roy Chapman Andrews found his fossils in the 10 years
of expeditions China and Mongolia. These exhibits are indoors and
outdoors, and includes a ˝ mile Tyrannosaurs Trail where you can
walk through a real Riparian Area that is 20° cooler than in town
and see lots of fossil displays and interactive exhibits. But be
prepared for weather approaching what Mr. Andrews experienced. This
so real that it is…well, real!
What will I get to see and do at the Expedition Center...
