Miniature Dinosaur Skeletons Even More Impressive Than Life-Size Ones

Can we bring back miniature movie sets? In the pre-CGI days, this was how you made incredibly nuanced settings, that look completely authentic until, you know, a normal-size human wanders in. The Musée Miniature & Cinéma in Lyon, France, collects over 100 of these sets, plus over 300 full-scale movie props. We have a particular fondness for this recreation of a hall of dinosaurs, because look how detailed they are! (via MentalFloss)
