That's a splendid job, beautifully created. 

I love the space and the light, as well as the wonderful specimens of course. 

Hope i can pay a visit one day!

Just a couple of questions.

What did you say you charge for admission? And is there a souvenir shop at the the exit?

Superlative setup.  Everything is easy to view, not crammed in every nook like my house.  Don’t show my wife!

What a fantastic retreat! Great work! I particularly like the prep room, although the rest of it is also just as impressive.

Excellent presentation, Ramo! I think you might be in a position to charge admission. :D Your use of space is inspired, and I like the mix of the very orderly and the interesting eccentric accents that truly personalize this space. :)

Sorry about the quality of my photos.  I forgot to change my camera settings.  Let me know if anyone wants a specific photo of anything re-done so it can be seen!

No admission, other than admitting that you might be a weird as I am when it comes to fossils.

My goal is to get everything out where it can be seen and not in storage.  Due to getting my stuff out and going through everything, I have quite a pile of stuff that I need to get rid of.  So although there is no gift shop, anyone that does come by is sure to leave with a bunch of free stuff.

This is absolutely awesome!!!

Doing something of this style is one of my dreams or goals for the future, so to see that a fellow TFF member managed to do it so well it gives me even more hope and envy to do mine :D 

Thanks for sharing, I loved the virtual tour, and hopefully one day I'll be able to come around to say hi!

That corner is my "physical science" corner.  I used to teach middle school through high school science, and am still a huge science nerd.  That corner still has quite a bit of work for me to do.  The big "gun" is a PVC air cannon my son and I made.  It is designed to short ears of corn, but it will shoot anything you can cram down the barrel.  The other one is a PVC  air soft "machine gun" my son and I made.  Shoots a bunch of plastic BB's quickly,  with little to no accuracy, but is a blast to shoot!

Wow Ramo, this great! I'll have to stop by next time I'm out west! Come to think of it, I probably should have a long time ago! I might be out there in late May. I'll also be doing some work for the University of Michigan in the chalk later this summer and we may have a couple groups coming down to visit the chalk . 

 

What are your favorite pieces? Do you have any closeups of those larger specimens mounted on the back wall? I remember seeing your pliosaur in the collection at FHSU!
