Ever since I watched the movie ” Jurrasic Park” I was enchanted by this magnificent creature ‘ Dinosaur’. All thanks to Mr. Steven Speiberg for bringing it back to life after millions of years. The euphoria behind the movie franchise is unmatched.
People of all age & sizes were enthralled to watch this enormous creature running around on celluloid. Hence last weekend we explored the ‘Goseong Dinosaur Museum‘.
So when I got to know that Goseong in South Korea has a Museum dedicated to Dinosaurs, I lapped up the opportunity to experience the company of this magnificent creature once again, this time in person.
What makes this museum rather special? There are dinosaur museums already? Questions I asked myself. Well, FYI, the Goseong Dinosaur museum is built next to one of the world’s largest Dinosaur footprints fossil sites. This information accelerated my interest.
Goseong Dinosaur Museum Trip
Goseong Dinosaur Museum is a bit away from the main city. It is around 25kms from Goseong Bus terminal. We enjoyed the drive immensely as we breezed through snake-like roads cut across lush green mountains.
The earthy aroma of forest flowers & vegetation filled the air. The journey was so enjoyable that I almost forgot about the destination.
1. Goseong Dinosaur Museum is Korea’s First Dinosaur Museum
The four storey building consists of many display areas & fun activities to keep you entertained. There are 7 real dinosaur fossils with many reproduced models & replicas. There are total 169 items on display.
2. Check Out Real Dinosaur Footprints
3. Mind-Blowing Full Size Dinosaur Fossil!
4. Dinosaur Themed Play Area for your Little explorers
This place has a huge play area divided into three parts. The one right at the entrance has a dinosaur-themed play area. The kids were mesmerized by watching so many life-size dinosaurs at one place.
How can you expect someone to smile when a giant dinosaur is hovering overhead?…I still managed some how ? Isssamile plzzzzz!
Some caged animals…
I am not a big fan of Zoo. I rather get enraged by the sight of caged animals. I don’t know if it’s just me or this splendid white peacock is actually sad!
7. Outdoor with real Dinosaur Footprints on rocks
Who wouldn’t want to be a child again if you have such play areas? :)
We missed out on watching the dinosaur footprints engraved on the rocks lying on the beach as it started raining ( umm rain you played the spoilsport :/ ) But guys, you MUST watch it.
The experience was superlative not only for kids but everyone who visit this site. The breathtaking beauty of this place, the thrill of watching dinosaur fossils, the mere thought that dinosaurs actually roamed around in the same area made the whole experience extraordinary…
