The Museum of Jurassic Technology is equipped with the most state-of-the-art technology to house sculptures and statues. All of the rooms are dark and yellow or blue lights are often centered on each collection.

One of the exhibited art is Pope John Paul II which is carved out of dust pieced together using human hair. This is one of the masterpieces of the sculptor Hagpo Sandaljian. Other collections include Eskimo dog slippers and a bat which is stuck on lead wall. Guests can also wear special glasses and be able to see a decapitated head of a fox peeping through a glass display every few moments. The museum is just a one-storey building near the bus stop so visitors have the easy access to a number of dioramas, one-of-a kind machines, and mysterious photographs.

Established in 1989 by David Wilson and Diana Wilson who are both artists, the museum is intended to provide educational information through visuals on the Lower Jurassic years which has existed about 145 million years ago. All of the items displayed are arranged based on the specimen and object of interest. They follow certain scientific method.

Part of the visit allows visitors to microscopes to let them see miniature details of artifacts or photographs. For example, the Magnetic Hydromacy of the inventor Athanasius Kircher, which is made from wax embedded with magnets can forecast particular messages that is reflected on the display glass.

Most displays is grounded on myths. For example, the exhibit of a pair of dead mice on top of toasted bread is believed to mend certain troubles. While the piece with a child?s hand holding a bird is said to result in a long term tremor on the hand. There is also a belief wherein a duck?s bill placed in the mouth of a child with throat disorders has the potential to cure the condition. This one is called the Duck?s Breath.

Other collections have no superstitious belief anchored but fun evolution of inventions like the Los Angeles Mobile Homes and Trailer Parks as well as global maps called Trailer Manufacturers and Park Distribution.

One of the most famous displays in the museum is the Rotten Luck, an exhibit dedicated to the magician Ricky Jay. There are displays of antique dice and audio narration of famous words and lines of Jay.
