Does anyone else find it amusing that the highway signs for the "Dinosaur State Park" are hanging next to signs for the Veteran's Home?

My son loves dinosaurs and the place was good enough for a 5yrs old. I was disappointed but made the best of our trip. The outside area was also a bit confusing, I thought it was dinosaurs trails.

The exhibit itself was very small, but only costs $6 for adults. There are nice hiking trails at the park too.
