Natural History Museum Opens

After much speculation and a fair amount of controversy, the MoreCityBricks Natural History Museum has opened for business.

The building features a two-story atrium topped with an impressive skylight running almost the full width of the building. Sitting beneath the skylight is Rex, the tyrannosaurus that was unearthed a while back at a construction site on Original Avenue.

Patrons young and old are in for a treat as the Museum features something for everyone.

"The Dinosaur Dig is a big hit," proclaimed one dad. "Where else can you set your kids loose and let them dig up dinosaur bones?"

The gift shop has been hopping with activity since the doors opened, with visitors and supporters snapping up their own T-Rex building kits, hats, mugs and everything under the sun.

"We're overwhelmed with the turnout," said Kate Curry, the museum curator. "The Raptor Cafe always has a line. The Discovery Lab has a steady stream of visitors. And, of course, the atrium is always buzzing with people and camera flashes as everyone gets up close and personal with Rex!"

The museum is open seven days a week. Please call ahead to be sure you can get a ticket for your desired date.
