Jim walked through the almost desolate museum. Except for the curators and their obviously bored grandchildren, there was no one to be seen. Not even the lure of free tickets and popcorn had worked. As of now, the museum housed more extinct species than living ones.
‘Museums are becoming extinct,’ he lamented to his grandson.
‘Pops, you need to change with the times. Who wants to see some inanimate bones, when they can experience everything in n dimension in the Virtual Reality museums.’
‘Flying with the Pterosaurs and being chased by a T-Rex is not science, it is science fiction.’
‘Maybe, but at least people pay to see that.’
