In the morning before leaving I thought I should at least go inside. Back in 2018 they were in the middle of a big remodeling project which included adding on a “museum”.
Walking into the entryway were these two dioramas.
Looks interesting and well done.
Inside you are overwhelmed with all the
junk hand-crafted mementos one could buy to remember their visit to The Thing? tourist center.
The only thing I may have remotely be interested in buying would be a t-shirt of which I don’t need.
The nice lady at the counter encouraged me to visit their newly finished museum. “It is really nice” she said as she pointed off into the back corner of the shop. I thought I might just do that. But once back at the corner the loud dramatic music blasting from inside deterred my going in. It would have loosened my fillings. The $5 admission fee sealed the deal. I walked on.
Coming up another aisle this wide-screen TV was displaying flashing scenes of what was inside the “museum” encouraging you to investigate. It had this Aliens vs Dinosaurs theme going on. Okay, I could see it was pretty hokey looking. I would have been upset with myself paying five dollars for that.
Back outside I climbed into our home asking Beans if she was ready to go.
