Create an itinerary including Museum of Jurassic Technology
The Museum of Jurassic Technology at 9341 Venice Boulevard in the Palms district of Los Angeles, California, was founded by David Hildebrand Wilson and Diana Drake Wilson in 1988. It calls itself "an educational institution dedicated to the advancement of knowledge and the public appreciation of the Lower Jurassic", the relevance of the term "Lower Jurassic" to the museum's collections being left uncertain and unexplained.

The museum's collection includes a mixture of artistic, scientific, ethnographic, and historic items, as well as some unclassifiable exhibits; the diversity evokes the cabinets of curiosities that were the 16th-century predecessors of modern natural-history museums. The factual claims of many of the museum's exhibits strain credibility, provoking an array of interpretations.

David Hildebrand Wilson received a MacArthur Foundation fellowship in 2001.

  • I can’t really describe this museum…. It’s a collection of really, really, odd and strange things in a mysterious location.

  • Number 1 destination for locals and tourists alike. Museum with an aesthetic unmatched in this world, you will learn a lot while being left in awe with the experience. Give yourself a break on the rooftop tea garden/aviary and leave no room unseen.
  • Great experience… a thoughtfully curated collection of curiosities. I spent about 2 hours and covered most of the exhibits, but didn’t have time for tea or the theater. I’d recommended checking the theater schedule ahead of time if that’s if interest. I look forward to visiting again to see any new installations and make time for the tea room and theater.
