The Museum of Jurassic Technology at 9341 Venice Boulevard in the Palms district of Los Angeles, California, was founded by David Hildebrand Wilson and Diana Drake Wilson in 1988. It calls itself "an educational institution dedicated to the advancement of knowledge and the public appreciation of the Lower Jurassic", the relevance of the term "Lower Jurassic" to the museum's collections being left uncertain and unexplained.Use our Culver City trip maker site to add Museum of Jurassic Technology and other attractions to your Culver City vacation plans.
The museum's collection includes a mixture of artistic, scientific, ethnographic, and historic items, as well as some unclassifiable exhibits; the diversity evokes the cabinets of curiosities that were the 16th-century predecessors of modern natural-history museums. The factual claims of many of the museum's exhibits strain credibility, provoking an array of interpretations.
David Hildebrand Wilson received a MacArthur Foundation fellowship in 2001.
Museum of Jurassic Technology reviews

For museum lovers it's great. Weird, eclectic set of exhibits that range from the strange histories of popular historical figures to unfounded technologies that never made it because they were too radical for their time. Enjoyable for a date since it's easy to go through the entire small museum at your preferred pace, enjoy the tea room (and occasional love music towards the evening), and it's in the heart of Culver, so plenty of bars, restaurants, and activities in walking distance.
A place that exists outside of time, the most unique experience you will find in LA. The tea is amazingly satisfying too. You'll need to go with enough time to carefully appreciate each exhibit. An hour longer than you would think, as the movies shown are incredibly enthralling.
