“life in the Jurassic”
Like a coat of two colors, the Museum serves dual functions. On the one hand the Museum provides the academic community with a specialized repository of relics and artifacts from the Lower Jurassic, with an emphasis on those that demonstrate unusual or curious technological qualities. On the other hand the Museum serves the general public by providing the visitor a hands-on experience of "life in the Jurassic"....
Absolutely fantastic. It is devilishly hard to describe what it is if you haven't been there. One of the best things about the MJT is that you are never let "in on" the secret; you can leave with absolutely no better idea of what it is than when you arrived. I would describe it as a massive interactive art installation that stimulates imagination and playfully questions the current scientific paradigm in which we live. A must-see for anyone with an appreciation for kitsch, humir with a dark twist, and unbridled imagination. Oh, and they have a great tea room. One if the top 3 best places I have ever been.
This place is so bizarre it's difficult to describe. But it is definitely one of the most "offbeat" attractions I've ever been to. I'm not sure if this museum is joking or not, but it's a collection of a wide assortment of funky objects that's presented at least as if they were factual artifacts. In the end you have to see the museum yourself to understand it, and I'd definitely recommend it to anybody with an adventurous/quirky spirit who's looking to see something absolutely unique to L.A.
I believe this place is owned or supported by David Mamet, the playwright. It's a great museum, in the sense that it's a wonderful thought experiment.
I'm not sure what this place even is trying to be or do, but I think I like it!
I feel strongly that I just unknowingly donated admission money to a cult. I spent nearly two hours perusing exhibits on some of the most arcane and unrelated subjects I had never heard of. Interesting no doubt but extremely bizarre.
