Or instead of new murals or dioramas, how about some more video? Kids are used to videos… for documentaries, movies, and videogames. I don’t usually gripe (look at my other reviews), but Yale can do better… and they should be able to do better than a family that has many incredible life-size dinosaur exhibits in the forests and fields of Montville, CT. the gemology section is tacky, but the Dinosaur Place in Montville is otherwise much better for repeated family outings.
