It took us an hour to get there, and it’s in the middle of nowhere, but the Tellus Museum in Cartersville, GA was a lot of fun.
The first thing you see is a mammoth dump truck in the parking lot. It’s so huge they had to get it there in three parts.
Why do they change the name of animals that no longer exist? I grew up with Brontosaurus being the largest dinosaur, but now it’s Apatasaurus. Wait they’re the same thing!
And then there’s the Honu the size of an Escalade.
And don’t forget the armadillo the size of a Volkswagon.
We all got to dig for fossils that we could keep.
And pan for precious gems.
They even had one of the few surviving EV1 electric cars.
And a 1903 Waverly Electric Car.
We spent the whole day there and no one complained about being bored. Win!
