Museums Should Place Real Dinosaur Skeletons or Simulated Fossil Copies?

Whether adults or children, the first reaction to the dinosaur fossils when they arrive at the museum is whether they are real or fake?

In most cases, taking all the factors into account, using fossil copies is the best choice for museums.

First of all, fossil replicas are lighter than real bones, which means they need less support. On the contrary, real bones need more support. This extra support also puts more pressure on the bones. Installation of real bones is also very complex and requires regular checks to ensure that they remain in optimal condition and perfection.Dinosaur Skeletons

In addition, people who need to touch them, such as researchers and pavilion maintenance personnel, need to climb to high places for fossil maintenance. There are potential safety hazards. If the real dinosaur fossil skeleton is damaged when it is installed or displayed, the results will be irreversible. And the preservation conditions of fossils are very harsh. Only when the temperature and humidity of the exhibition hall are kept at a certain level can these bones be preserved more perfectly.

When using fossil replicas, these problems do not exist, and another advantage is that these bones can be colored, which is obviously never achieved when using real dinosaur bones.

Finally, not every bone of a dinosaur has been found in the real dinosaur skeleton excavation, so it lacks integrity for the exhibition, and the fossil replica can be customized according to the existing information to solve this problem perfectly.

To sum up, fossil replicas should be a better choice for museums.
