We went up to Seymour to do a volksmarching event.  The event started at the Whiteside Museum.  They were having open house and we did not have to pay to go inside and view the exhibits.

Quote from Whiteside Website “Before T-Rex ever reared his head, Dimetrodon roamed the land as the “Terrible LIzard” of the Permian Era. The town of Seymour is only a stone’s throw from one of the greatest Permian bone beds in the entire world; it only makes sense that the creatures of the Permian – Seymouria, Dimetrodon, Edaphasaur, and Eryops (just to name a few) – should be the stars of the show. West Texas, and Seymour in particular, is home to some of the best Permian skeletons in existence, and the Whiteside is privileged to show off these fantastic discoveries.”

Quote from Whiteside Website: “It’s not often these days that we see buffalo roaming around outside of Yellowstone National Park. With our extensive taxidermy and skeletal collection in the Texas Wildlife exhibit, we allow visitors a chance to see these creatures and more, safe and up-close.”
