California’s coast once teamed with life that is only evidenced today by what remains–‘dem bones! You can go to several museums to see them–dino bones are kept on the campus of Cal Berkeley, and you’ll find them on view at Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and San Diego Natural History Museum. In L.A. there is an extensive collection of dinosaurs including an Anthrodemus, Stegosaurus, and a Tyrannosaurus. The San Diego collection includes a Nodosaurus and a full Allosaurus reconstruction.

And for 11 days in November, Fairplex in Pomona features Wonder of Dinosaurs, America’s largest traveling dinosaur exhibition with more than 100 robotic and static dinosaurs. Along with the dinosaur displays, there will be dinosaur themed bouncers, dinosaur themed miniature golf, dinosaur themed maze, dinosaur zoomers, robotic dinosaur rides, gemstone and fossil panning, dinosaur dig and more. Daddy, Mommy & Baby Diplodocus display will reach to the height of the ceiling and is nearly 50 feet long. The exhibition will open November 22nd and run through December 1, 2013 (closed Thanksgiving Day) from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm daily. Tickets prices range from $12.95 to $22.95. See:
