Were the feathers part of a complex mating ritual, or a stepping stone in the evolution of flight?

"THE GREAT HALL OF DINOSAURS is an illustrated guide to studying and drawing dinosaurs ... Astounding dioramas of the world's biggest, fiercest and fastest creatures line the halls, from a lumbering family of grazing triceratops and a gnashing T-rex to a duo of swift-footed carnotaurus. History's 'terrible lizards' are more than a thundering Hollywood nightmare. William O'Connor brings these beautiful and complex beasts to life through accurate illustration based on the anatomical and scientific knowledge of contemporary paleontology. But in The Great Hall of Dinosaurs, our imaginations aren't limited by science: We can dream of worlds and scenes that may have existed millions of years ago, of animals we have never seen before, using nothing more than a simple no. 2 pencil and some paper."--Page 4 of cover.

On May 28, 2007, the Creation Museum opened in Petersburg, Kentucky. Aimed at scientifically demonstrating that the universe was created less than ten thousand years ago by a Judeo-Christian god, the museum is hugely popular, attracting millions of visitors over the past eight years. Surrounded by themed topiary gardens and a petting zoo with camel rides, the site conjures up images of a religious Disneyland. Inside, visitors are met by dinosaurs at every turn and by a replica of the Garden of Eden that features the Tree of Life, the serpent, and Adam and Eve. In Righting America at the Creation Museum, Susan L. Trollinger and William Vance Trollinger, Jr., take readers on a fascinating tour of the museum. The Trollingers vividly describe and analyze its vast array of exhibits, placards, dioramas, and videos, from the Culture in Crisis Room, where videos depict sinful characters watching pornography or considering abortion, to the Natural Selection Room, where placards argue that natural selection doesn’t lead to evolution. The book also traces the rise of creationism and the history of fundamentalism in America. This compelling book reveals that the Creation Museum is a remarkably complex phenomenon, at once a "natural history" museum at odds with contemporary science, an extended brief for the Bible as the literally true and errorless word of God, and a powerful and unflinching argument on behalf of the Christian right.

Understanding the visitor experience provides essential insights into how museums can affect people’s lives. Personal drives, group identity, decision-making and meaning-making strategies, memory, and leisure preferences, all enter into the visitor experience, which extends far beyond the walls of the institution both in time and space. Drawing upon a career in studying museum visitors, renowned researcher John Falk attempts to create a predictive model of visitor experience, one that can help museum professionals better meet those visitors’ needs. He identifies five key types of visitors who attend museums and then defines the internal processes that drive them there over and over again. Through an understanding of how museums shape and reflect their personal and group identity, Falk is able to show not only how museums can increase their attendance and revenue, but also their meaningfulness to their constituents.
