Albuquerque Museum

I happened to stop by the New Mexico Museum of Natural History in Albuquerque during a recent trip. I was pleasantly surprised at their dinosaur exhibits. While just a couple of rooms (one Jurassic, and one about the Cretaceous period when most of NM was under water) and the promise of a Triassic room being constructed, it was very nicely put together and worth an hour of walking around, and their cafe serves a decent lunch (and a great brownie). The museum is just a few blocks off of I-40 the next time anybody passes through. They have a cast of Stan (T-rex), some sauropod (I forget, titanosaur maybe), and some medium size theorpod (I forget, something like Sargauphax or something).
