Review: Fernbank Museum Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids exhibit

Review: Fernbank Museum Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids exhibit

When I first heard I was invited to a private preview of Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids exhibit, currently on view at the Fernbank Museum all I could think about was how a museum can make an exhibition that is not based on science. Much to my surprise, I was shocked to discover the real science behind this amazing exhibit.

 
The exhibit theorizes the kraken may be based on sightings of the corpses of giant squids, which have been known to wash up on shores. Or that legends about giant men or giant birds might come from people finding fossils and trying to make sense of what kind of creature could have had such large bones.  SEE THE MYTHICAL CREATURES AT MY BLOG, LIZA CARDONA
