  1. I spent a week or so recently in the north of Germany, mainly to spend some time with my son and his family, but I did take them all along one day for a sidetrip to the Urzeithof, of which I had learned through an interesting article about it in the last edition of the German journal "Fossilien". I must say, I was very impressed by what Frank Rudolph and his partner Katrin Mohr along with a large number of enthusiastic and engaged volunteers have managed to create over the last few years. Katrin, an enthusiastic hobby fossil collector, started the museum over 10 years ago when a barn on her hu

    Texas Through Time

    My wife and I took the 90 minute drive south to visit the Texas Through Time museum in Hillsboro, TX yesterday. I met the director, Andre Lujan, in Tucson this year. The museum is housed in the historic Grimes Garage. It was built in 1917 (I think) and was the first garage/filling station with indoor restrooms. The museum is small but there are plans in the works for an expansion. If all goes through, it will be quite a facility in such a small town. The museum features fossils from 1800’s Texas, so this includes modern Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. It is arranged in a clockwi
  3. For my birthday a couple of weeks ago, we had gone to the museum of ancient life at thanksgiving point in Utah. Here are some of the pictures that I took. Sorry that they're a bit blurry. The Gorgosaurus in the lobby. The prep station has been up and going. I think the fossils that are being prepped are from the morrison formation. Here are some vertebrae that had been prepared. The trilobites And TFF's favorite trilobite A Ceratosaurus, the brown is real bone Close up on the skull Some Supersaurus stuff, all on loan from
  4. Well it has finally opened to the public on December 4rth. "The new Dawn of Life Gallery" at The ROM is perhaps the best gallery on the planet covering the earliest life to the emergence of land dwelling creatures. I was fortunate to have a tiny part in the new gallery having prepared a number of the museums specimens and also having donated and sold them some pieces . Here is a tiny taste of what you can see in the new gallery. It will not disappoint.
  5. Over the weekend I spent some time at the Burpee Museum of Natural History in Rockford, Illinois. My primary reason for visiting was to check out their local Ordovician fossils, but I was quite surprised by how large and comprehensive the museum was. Lots of great fossils and cool dioramas, definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. Diorama of the Ordovician sea Trilobites Crinoids and an edrioasteroid Cephalopods Bivalves and gastropods Receptaculitids
  6. Last weekend I went to Crystal Mountain, it is a retail store with attached cafe, animal feeding, small rollercoaster (for the kids), large indoor playground etc overall a pretty cool place to visit. Under the shop there is a museum, which is what this post is about - not your typical museum, a lot of things are unlabeled unfortunately, it's quite small (just 3 large rooms with corridors) all set up to look like you're deep underground in a cave. These photos are in no particular order I got my youngest (6 years old) to pose in front of some of the really big crystals to add a bit o

  8. I have been in contact with the head of the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Museum for a couple years showing some of my better plant fossils from my area. Miocene age, Beluga Formation, This last week I had a Masters Degree student come and visit my collection and my local site. She is going to do her thesis on the local miocene flora. There are papers on plants presumed to be older and younger but none from this section of the formation. I donated approximately 100 lbs of specimens to the University of Alaska Fairbanks Museum of the North to be used by her then pu
  9. I was in the area, so I made a very brief stop by the HMNS. I'll state up-front that this will be extremely dino-centric. What I saw was really great, they have a chronologically-organized display of animals from stromatolites to humans (I only made it to the Cretaceous). The lighting is very dramatic, so seeing it in person is much better than the dark photos portray (I did edit a few of them to enhance visibility). Lots of dynamic posing which is nice compared to other museums. Also, most specimens aren't behind glass, and you can get really close. I believe most of the skeleton
  10. The Paleontological Society of Austin took a trip to the Museum for this months Field Trip. Collecting in August is not much fun unless you get out WAY early, so a nice Air Conditioned Museum sounded like a good idea! So we went to a small museum that has been open for only a couple of years, but has a really nice collection of Texas fossil (and a few other places, but primarily Texas). They are known for their work in the Permian Red Beds, so much of the focus is on that time period, but a nice selection of other eras as well. We were fortunate to get a "behind the museum" tour too, of their

  12. Taiwan's largest museum devoted only to fossils is located at the southern part of the island, near the city of Tainan at the Zuojhen Fossil Park. Most travelers will start their journey in the capital city of Taipei, but Tainan is only a <2 hour bullet train ride away (the bullet train, or high speed rail, is a destination in of itself- a marvel of speed, comfort and efficiency) and a visit to the Zuojhen Fossil Park is highly recommended. For western audiences, fossil park may be a bit misleading. Its not a park as in playgrounds and grassy fields, more like an industrial park, or complex
  13. Haven't had time to post here lately, but I carved out a slot so here we go. In April of last year (2019), I had a chance to visit China. When I was in Beijing, one of my goals was to see the feathered dinos. I visited two museums that had them. One was the Geological Museum of China. The other (The Beijing Museum of Natural History) will be the subject of another post. I took hundreds of pictures there, but I can't post them all here. I have selected some of the better ones, focusing on the feathered critters. You'll have to excuse the lighting and quality
  14. My wife and I recently traveled to Fairbanks, Alaska for a mini vacation and toured the Museum of the North on the University of Alaska, Fairbanks campus. It brought back some old memories as I completed my undergraduate training there in 1986. Here are a few pictures from the displays that I found interesting. The hadrosaurs display is fairly new and in the entryway Mammoth display Dinosaur interpretive displaysRay Troll art. Enjoy! AK Hiker
  15. I'd wager that most of us here have found our passion because of our local natural history museum. I know I did, ever since I was a child and visited the LA County Natural History Museum frequently. COVID-19 has proved a profound challenge to our beloved local institutions. A large part of their revenues have come from museum visits, which has not been possible during the current pandemic. Vaccines are available and museums have gradually begun to reopen, but the need remains. Our museums need our support now as ever before. In that spirit, I'm going to donate $200 to the Los Angeles County Na
  16. In 2008, I found one of the prizes of my collection amongst a pile of sand and broken bits at Calvert Cliffs. I knew from seeing museum specimens of Isognomon maxillata that even with the tip broken off, this was a great find. After admiring it on my shelf every day since, I decided to share it. Today it has a new home at the Delaware Museum of Natural History, which did not have any of this species or much of anything from that region amongst its 2,000,000+ mollusk specimens. Along with the Isognomon, I donated a Chesapectin nefrens shell with a number of pearl buds on the inside and a Tongu
  17. A few more of my favorite finds from the Aurora Fossil Museum Matrix - I am not even half way through the two gallon bags of matrix from my purchase! SO MUCH COOL LITTLE STUFF!! Being micros, all specimens are under 1/4 inch Shark Teeth: Top Cookie Cutter, Sand Tiger Bottom : Catshark, Unknown Not Shark Teeth: Top: Not sure what this one is, Second one is Raja Bottom: Fish Porgy and Dasyatidae Top: Echinoid spine and tubercle Bottom: Burrfish mouthplate and a bit o' Crab I think Not sure a
  18. Although I've been to Taiwan many times, it never occurred to me to visit their natural history museum until my last trip in late 2019. Most travelers will start in the capital city, Taipei, which is home to the National Taiwan Museum. Unfortunately, it was undergoing extensive remodeling so there wasn't much to see in terms of fossils at the main building. Across the street is the Land Bank Exhibition Hall (LBEH). Entrance to the LBEH is included in the price of admission to the National Taiwan Museum (around $1). The suggested walking path through the LBEH is essentially a walk

    Aurora Fossil Museum micro matrix

    I have a quick question for those that have bought and gone through their micro matrix from the Aurora Fossil Museum. Did you wash it before going through it, or wash it after you've found your fossils? I got the pack with the mini screen for sifting, but I'm a little afraid to wash it all first and risk losing tiny teeth. How did you all go about doing yours, or what do you think the best way would be?
  20. Will follow up with current stage photos shortly! Here is what I started with: Unidentified Provenance Unknown Really bad mold mismatch/ thick seam

    Cameloid skull and ramus- NE SD ?

    Whew. Last one with identifying marks to identify. Is a museum cast. UNSM 4616 Sure, I could email the collections curator at Morril Hall, but I’m afraid to wear out my welcome. As of yet have been unable to find data on this one on my own. Figure I’ll give yinze a crack at it before I bother the museum for the twentieth time. My research shows this to be a camel of some sort. It is likely Nebraska or South Dakota in origin for the original due to the provenance of the other casts yinze have seen me dealing with the last few weeks.
  22. Fast and dirty: Found this cast a day or two back in the stock room- someone made an attempt...so I’m going to fix it since it uses similar colors to the lion and peccary projects.
  23. My kids and I have had a very successful year, so far, collecting a ton of Miocene fossils from the Calvert Cliffs. Along with some larger shark teeth, cetacean bones, etc., we accumulated a couple of containers full of smaller and broken teeth, ray plate pieces, unidentifiable bone fragments, and the like. After some discussion, my boys and I agreed it would be great if we could donate many of these "excess" finds to the Calvert Marine Museum to support their youth educational programs. This is actually where my kids and I first learned about fossil collecting from the Calvert Cliffs ourselv
