Best Inner City Jurassic Park: TIE: Texas Memorial Museum; Austin Nature & Science Center

Thanks to Steven Spielberg, Discovery, and PBS, the allure of fossil finding is deeply ingrained in all American youth. Thanks to the Dino Pits at the Texas Memorial Museum and the Austin Nature Center, junior archaeologists can dig locally for fossils (replicated from ones housed at the TMM), and cries of Eureka! ring out when a tiny pterosaur tidbit is uncovered.
