The Petrified Creatures Museum in Richfield Springs, New York, is happy to call itself the best in the North East because it gives attendees something no other Paleontology museum can a chance to dig up and discover your own ancient fossils.
Among the life-size dinosaur sculptures surrounding the museum is a real archeological dig where kids and adults can search for 390 million-year-old fossils from the Devonian Era.
Director Stella Mlecz says, Its the real thing. You dig in limestone with a hammer and chisel to find impressions of sea creatures that once swam in this area.
Mlecz guarantees that anyone can dig up a pre-historic piece, assuring, If you dont find a fossil here, its because you havent tried.
Since the bonafide museum produces fossils on a daily basis, she hopes archaeologists take it over soon, because shes tired and feels as old as the fossils in the ground.
