While the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum is Temporarily Closed

Researchers Publish Videos on Their Favourite Specimens

Although the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum is temporarily closed, due to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), researchers at the museum have published videos on the internet, talking about their favourite specimens.

The project is so that children who love dinosaurs can have a museum experience while staying at home. There are fifteen roughly 3-minute videos in the series, of a researcher talking about their favourite or most recommended specimen. In addition, there are also videos of researchers and reporters going around exhibits unveiled as recently as April 4th, including the skull of a Brachiosaurus and a complete skeleton of a Probactrosaurus.

“We wish for visitors, who plan to visit, to learn about the highlights of this museum” said a Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum researcher.
