A. Some are actual fossils, others are casts.
Q. How is the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum funded?
A. We are self-funded by sales of casts, fossils, and restoration; also by molding jobs. We also have our own digs and manage digs for others. We are not 501C-3.
If you would like to make a donation to a 501C-3 organization that actively supports fossil research and restoration - we would be glad to provide you with a list of the ones that we know of and work with.
Q. Is Mt Blanco Fossil Museum a religious organization?
A. We are a science museum, showing facts and data about the actual fossils in the museum. We believe that evolution is an old-fashioned theory not substantiated by facts, and that what the Bible says is more scientifically accurate. Our museum shows that there was a worldwide flood only a few thousand years ago. We show that most species are not getting more complex or larger. There are also numerous specimens that show most fossils were buried rapidly.
Q. Do you think Noah took dinosaurs on the ark?
A. Absolutely. We can show you why.
