I have just returned from Denver, where I visited thsi exhibit.
I was quite impressed. Not only were there lots of nice dioramas
and fossils, there were lots of educational explanatory displays.
These included a demonstration of natural selection and a demonstration
of stratigraphic correlation.

And the Stegosaurus has a full set of throat ossicles.

Advice: if you plan to go, get an *advance* reservation, or you might
not be allowed in.
The peace of God be with you.
