Dinosaurs!!! Rawr?

Bishop museum, the second museum I have visited in as many weeks, recently boasted of an exhibit called 'DINOSAURS UNEARTHED'. My inner child is probably to blame for the waste of a day...

I was expecting (EXPECTING!!!) to find dinosaur bones: T-Rex, Brontosaurus, Raptors (expecially after XKCD, simply to judge the size in person so that I can be better informed of possible raptor entry points) etc. As we walked up to the one story building that was to house these beasts I realize that something just doesn't add up.

I must have seen a total of four (4!) bones and they were all in glass cases. The rest was all scale reconstructions of mechanically enhanced dinosaurs that made the oddest noises I have ever heard. It took me a total of five minutes to walk through the entire exhibit.

I was pretty disappointed, and even more so when I decided I would just go walk around to check out the rest of the cool things at the museum and realized that it is pretty much all Hawaiian history, which is even more boring than fake dinosaurs that growl at me as I walk by.
