Sierra College’s Natural History Museum
So, Sierra College has a totally free natural history museum that I had no clue about until I started looking for things to review for this website. And you what? It’s pretty damn NIFTY.
They are very big on the drawings outside. I’m not even going to pronounce that creature’s name.
Now that’s an entry way.
Who wants a hug!?
I can see how someone who’s never seen en elephant skull could come up with a cyclops myth.
I’m not sure if it was intentional, but I applaud who ever placed the raptor peaking around the door for maximum Oh Dear God!.
And a random protein strand, cause why not?
Well, hopefully I’m not the one with the tiny leg.
As scary as great white sharks are, I’m very glad we are beyond the Giant Mega Animal time period.
Lots of rocks.
Eeeeeeeee a binturong! Now you can see why I think my cat is part binturong.
Death From Above!!!
The arboretum outside.
With more skulls, ’cause there’s always room for more skulls.
And mining equipment. We are a rather mining influenced area.
Sadly there were no booklets. I do like a good booklet (no sarcasm, I’m a geek).
Awesome-O-Meter: 4 1/2 Awesomes Sierra College’s Natural History Museum may be a bit on the smallish side, but goodness do they pack a whole lot in there. And the free admission certainly doesn’t hurt my feelings any. It’s also unique for the area which is also a plus. If you are in the area, you should definitely check it out.
