The Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles, California, is an encyclopedic museum holding many splendid, unique, and puzzling treasures. It's a carnival of delights and ideas, many of them outside of the commonly held canons of fact and accomplishment. It slips around the question, 'is it real?', refusing to pit fact against fiction or art against data, instead weaving it all together into something more mysterious and joyful. In this first of two segments on the museum, curator David Wilson welcomes us into his worlds of inspiration, and parts the curtain to reveal how this impossible place indeed exists.
