Across the coast to the east we targeted a little Jurassic museum which was apparently unmissable (MUJA). When we got there we discovered that today they had waived the fee and we got to visit for free. Saving 12€ which is heaps these days!

We had no idea that the northern coast was world renowned for its prehistoric findings. So here we got to look at some fascinating specimens, most that would put the British museum to shame. We even got to see a couple of Archaeopteryx fossils, which you may remember was the animal that was half lizard, half bird. The bain of the creationists and the savior of the evolutionists.
They also had a couple of T-rex skeletons doing a "mating ritual". It would have been funnier if they just said the skeletons were '”boning”.

We got to learn about the rich prehistoric features of the area including some of the other attractions we could go and visit. Which lead us down the road again to the beach, where after a short walk we were able to see authentic dinosaur footprints preserved in the rock! We had heaps of fun picking around them, and the surrounding boulders, perhaps in some kind of attempt of making our own amazing discovery.

There's nothing like seeing dinosaurs that makes you feel 8 years old again.
