Hidden behind a small green door off Venice Boulevard in Culver City, California, the Museum of Jurassic Technology is a deceptively large space. The front door opens into a well lit gift shop that leads back into the depths of the darkened museum itself. The entrance fee is $8 for adults, $5 for students.
Beyond the gift shop lies a bizarre maze of quirky, odd displays shrouded in mostly darkness with patches of low lighting directly hitting the information placards and displays themselves. It was difficult at times to see the other patrons as they wandered through, checking out the various installments, which almost made you felt like you were somewhere you shouldn’t be, creeping around behind the scenes of a much larger production. At times, when I was trying to find the other members of my party, my head would construct this mini fantasy wherein I was being chased throughout the museum, unable to find a way out. It was delightfully creepy and pleasantly unsettling.
