Title Details

Running Time
23 Min.


The Museum of Jurassic Technology is a small non-descript storefront on Los Angeles's Venice Boulevard. Inside, it is a museum like no other. Museum creator David Wilson, a man of prodigiously unusual imagination, has been mounting a series of unbelievable exhibits there for the last 15 years. Spore-inhaling ants, x-ray bats, human horns, peach-pit carvings, novel theories of oblivion. Unusual - undeniably. But factual - possibly not. Lawrence Weschler investigated the natural and unnatural phenomena Wilson has assembled at the museum in his book Mr. Wilson's Cabinet of Wonder, which Kirkus Review called "A small jewel of a book, as intricate as the wonder it describes." The book was a finalist for both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics' Circle Award in 1995. In this documentary, Weschler brings the Museum of Jurassic Technology to radio in an unforgettable half-hour work of magic-realist nonfiction radio.
