Their paleontology section is fabulous, starting with small yet detailed trilobite fossils, marching onward to prehistoric elephants and crocodiles, and leading all the way up to Stegosaurus, towering Brachiosaurus, Triceratops, Ankylosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, and - my now undisputed favorite - Quetzalcoatlus. It's amazing to see the impressive size these creatures boasted, so fantasy-like that it's odd imagining how they were in fact real, walking this earth long before us.
