Visit your favorite prehistoric creatures in museums all across the world!
Here is this week’s museum to see:
Zigong Dinosaur Museum
The Zigong Dinosaur Museum is located in Dashanpu at Zigong City, on the banks of a river that flows through the western-China province of Sichuan. It is China’s first museum located at the actual burial site of dinosaurs and it covers 25,000 square meters.
‘Sichuan’s dinosaurs are numerous and one finds a veritable nest of them at Zigong.’ Zigong is a famous city for salt production, but it is also an important dinosaur fossil region in China. As a famous saying goes, one finds a veritable nest of dinosaurs at Zigong. There are more than forty locations within the city at which dinosaur fossils from different eras have been found. A very considerable amount of fossilized dinosaurs has been excavated here and other vertebrate fossils have been found as well at the same sites.
