DINO LAND TRAVELS PHOTO DATABASE

HOUSTON MUSEUM OF NATURAL SCIENCE
HOUSTON, TEXAS

During the summer of 1998 my family and I visited Houston, Texas. Unfortunately, the Dinosaurs of the Lost World exhibit had left the Houston Museum of Natural Science, but we decided to check out the museum anyway. The museum's dinosaur hall is located immediately to the right of the McDonalds in the main lobby. Actually, the dinosaur hall is the first exhibit you pass through upon entering the actual museum. While the hall is not as large as its more famous New York and Chicago counterparts, the Houston museum's displays were very exciting. Among other dinosaurs, T. rex, Triceratops, Edmontosaurus, and Deinonychus were mounted. There were also full sized replicas of Archaeopteryx and Compsognathus. While the dinosaur hall was amazing, its lighting was particularly bad. In each picture, all taken with a camera without a zoom lens (unfortunately), I used the flash, but some of them are still a bit hard to see.
