Dinosaur Discovery Museum
Dinosaur Discovery Museum in Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA, is dedicated to the exploration and explication of the relationship between modern birds and ancient carnivorous biped dinosaurs, the theropods, which include Carnotaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex, and Velociraptor. This link is especially well documented in the fossil record. The museum has the largest skeletal cast collection of Theropods (meat-eating) dinosaurs in North America and is the only museum to focus a gallery specifically on the evolution of birds from non-avian dinosaurs. The museum is located at 5608 10th Avenue, Kenosha, Wisconsin in the old Kenosha Public Museum building and is a part of the Kenosha Public Museums system.
The museum houses the Carthage Institute of Paleontology and an on-site laboratory. The institute conducts annual field explorations with students from Carthage College and volunteers from museums around the world. During the 2006 season, they discovered the remains of the youngest known Tyrannosaurus rex, nicknamed "Little Clint". Little Clint was only 2.5 years old when it died. The age of the animal was determined by thin-sectioning the femur with the help of paleontologists at the Museum of the Rockies.
Dr. Thomas Carr, vertebrate paleontologist, is scientific advisor to the museum and director of the Carthage Institute of Paleontology. Nick Wiersum is the curator of the museum.
