Geology Museum Open House

The UW-Madison Geology Museum will have some new dinosaur and fossil exhibits on display, alongside the beautiful minerals and fossils they normally have.

From the event description:
"Join us for a journey to the Jurassic! We'll have special displays and activities on what life was like during the Jurassic Period, roughly 150 million years ago."

    Very cool artifacts from the dino age. Lighting was a bit dark, but to be expected.

    Canceling out on social plan @ Union South after geology meetup. Just learned there's many cool science things going on all over campus that I don't want to miss.

    The Engineering drive ramp is apparently free on weekends: http://transportation.wisc.edu/parking/lotInfo_hours.aspx

    It's close enough too, just a block from Union South.

    Looks like lot 54 could work for parking too. 112 N charter St.

    Just a heads up: if you have a polarized filter, I suggest bringing it with you, as it helps quite a bit when taking shots of the stuff behind glass. The fossils on display probably won't need a polarizer, but anything shiny might.

    If you have any questions about the museum, you can ask me as I work in the same building (Weeks Hall). Otherwise, Brooke Norsted is the Assistant Director and is in charge of the Open House. You can contact the Geology Museum here: http://geoscience.wisc.edu/~museum/contact.html

    Thanks Patrick! I'm still planning to be there at 9am. With juggling kids attention span not sure exact time at Union but think I'd be at Union around 11pm. I don't know anyone from this group yet but maybe we will figure it out at the meeting tomorrow : ) or keep posting updates in these tiny writing boxes!

    April 3, 2013

  • Patrick K.

    If people want to meet at a certain time, let me know. The earliest I'm going to be there is 10.

    Bill - So, this event says 9am-4pm. I'm guessing any start time will do. I'm planning to be there at 9am. I plan to go to Union South after. Thanks for planning this meetup. I've never been to the Geology Museum.

      Hey Theresa, I'll be there at 9:00 also & head to Union South after shooting. BTW, I wasn't the one who planned this. I'm afraid I don't remember who did.

      April 3, 2013

    • Patrick K.

      I'm the one who organized it, but I won't be there until 10.

    If anyone else is bringing kids and you plan to go to Union South there's a fun Bucky Badger cut out that you can stand in and take a photo ; ) It's near the information desk.

    does anyone have a good parking suggestion?

    March 28, 2013

    • Patrick K.

      There's a parking ramp at Union South. Otherwise street parking is pretty much it.

      March 28, 2013

  • Bill

    I'll most likely join you too

    Starting at 9am and going to Union South (block away) after for lunch, ice cream or coffee would be nice. Anyone else interested? I won't know for sure my availability until closer though.

    March 27, 2013

    • Patrick K.

      Sounds good. Might do that.
