Dinosaur museum displays fossils of dinosaurs which existed times even before the earth. Even before it became home for humans. Historical events, materials, and pictures got from the times when these creatures existed are found in museums.
For example, the recent discovery of a species of dinosaur found near a dinosaur museum, that weighed 12 tonnes, and lived more than lived 200 million years ago, still leaves a global buzz in the ears of paleontologists.
If you’re intrigued as I am by the prehistoric world, this article rounds up a few of the world’s interesting museums for your enlightenment on dinosaurs.

Also, in the museum, it can also be found a complete set of the Heterodontosaurus skeleton. As well as a skull from the parts of the Carcharodontosaurus from North Africa. The skull was found to be bigger than a Tyrannosaurus rex, likewise the Jobaria sauropod. In there, are also collections of insects. The fossils, traditional wear, and stone tools crafted by people also lived over 120 000 years ago. This museum is one of the most equipped in the entire African horizon.
