2011 Card-vent Calendar: December 23

December 23, 2011:
1984 Milwaukee Public Museum #8 The Last of the Dinosaurs

The card above depicts the centerpiece of the MPM's prehistoric collection called "The Third Planet." The image used for this card is actually a pretty poor representation of the diorama. The real thing is much more gruesome, with the Triceratops' guts on display for all to see.

My trivia question for you is this: What is the best vantage point from which to view this exhibit? Get this right, and you can call yourself a true Milwaukeean.

Man.... isn't there a balcony where you can get a good look right insice that big ol' hole? It's been ages since I've been to the musuem. Did they make a card of the little Streets of Old Milwaukee candy shop too?

Nice work, there is indeed a second-floor balcony. I don't think there are any Streets of Old Milwaukee cards, though. Which gives me an idea...
