I can remember the last time I was at the Museum of Science - it was six years ago. I was a sophomore in college and that's where we got our Brass Rats. What that basically means is that I'm long overdue for another visit and as luck should have it, they have a pretty awesome new exhibit: Cliff the Triceratops.

The Museum of Science, Boston today announced that it will unveil an extremely rare dinosaur fossil for the first time to the public this fall – a skeleton of Triceratops horridus that was auctioned at Christie’s in Paris this past spring. According to Christie’s, the fossilized Triceratops skeleton is mostly complete, making it one of the world’s rarest paleontological finds. There are currently only three other largely complete Triceratops fossils on public display in the world. To present the fossil, the Museum has developed a new exhibit, Colossal Fossil: Triceratops Cliff, which will open November 15, 2008. Named after the donor’s grandfather, Triceratops Cliff is the fossilized remains of a real Triceratops who lived and died over 65 million years ago.

Colossal Fossil: Triceratops Cliff will open Saturday, November 15, 2008. The exhibit is ongoing and included with regular Exhibit Halls admission

Now that it's getting cold here, it's time to start finding some indoor activities. A visit to the Museum of Science is definitely going in the calendar - probably after all the Thanksgiving festivities are over. I'm picturing a leisurely stroll through the exhibits, a visit to Cliff, maybe a laser light show (I saw the Pink Floyd one many years ago), or perhaps an Imax flick.

See you guys there!
