Talking about dinosaur museum, you may think about a natural history museum or museum of natural history that kind of scientific institution with natural history collections that include current and historical records of animals, plants, ecosystems, geology, paleontology, climatology, and more. And dinosaur skeleton and fossils are part of the exhibits.
Yes, for that kind of natural history museum, the primary role is to provide the scientific community with current and historical specimens for their research, which is to improve our understanding of the natural world. Some museums have public exhibits to share the beauty and wonder of the natural world with the public; these are referred to as ‘public museums’. Some museums feature non-natural history collections in addition to their primary collections, such as ones related to history, art, and science.
Building a real dinosaur museum will require serious skills and money, neither of which you probably have in spades. But today we are talking about mini dinosaur museum. What is the meaning of ‘Mini’? A miniature is a small-scale reproduction, or a small version. So a mini dinosaur museum means small version of dinosaur museum. That kind of dinosaur museum you can own by yourself.
