William Poundstone’s Los Angeles County Museum on Fire

The Museum is Like a Movie, We’re Not Sure Which One

From a recent Sacramento Bee article on Culver City’s Museum of Jurassic Technology:

Quoted museum visitor: “It reminds me of the Coen Brothers film, ‘A Serious Man,’ the whole slightly dark humor that’s so funny you’re not sure it’s funny.”

Another visitor: “It’s like being in some surreal French film.”

Sac. Bee writer Sam McManis: “The Museum of Jurassic Technology… has nothing to do with dinosaurs or a certain famous movie director.… [One exhibit] plays out like some arch Wes Anderson film, straddling the line between boredom and fascination.”
