“James is an abundant source of knowledge. We love his classes and field excursions, and they are totally worth attending if you ever get a chance. Our future paleontologist kiddos learn so much from him!”

-Christina Ramirez

“We had a guided tour with a large group of teenagers through the Paleontology Hall a couple of weekends ago at noon with James Washington III (Jurassic James) and just wanted to give a huge ‘Thank You’ for now offering this tour service. It makes the museum’s already impressive collection of specimens that much richer and thought-provoking. I never enjoyed the pre-recorded audio tours at other museums because it failed to allow for questions, feedback or otherwise engage. This tour service goes above and beyond expectations.”

Good morning, 

“I just need to express my gratitude for a wonderful evening with my son. Yesterday we went to see Pacific Rim Facts vs Fiction with Jurassic James. It was incredible. My son (12 years old) has not found yet any special interest; like most kids now he is playing video games and watching YouTube. But yesterday he was so excited about the lecture that he actually went to ask James for his classes. It was amazing! I am so thankful!! Like always, your museum is the best!”

-M. C. Guerra

“Thank you so much for guiding my staff and me through the museum of Natural Science! Your incredible depth of knowledge and passion for science make it clear that this facility is a fantastic asset for Houston.

“On Wednesday, a geologist friend and I were touring the new paleontology hall when we had a delightful encounter with Jurassic James, a member of your concierge staff. He was informed and charming and even took time to offer us some insights into other exhibits about which we expressed an interest. His enthusiasm is infectious and he is clearly knowledgeable. I wish we could clone him and put one of him in every science class in America. The museum is to be congratulated for encouraging James and others like him. He is a real asset to the museum.

“Our tour guide was Mr. James. He did a marvelous job explaining everything in a very professional and knowledgeable way. He made our trip to this museum a very good experience. Thanks.”

“I had the most amazing experience last Friday. I had the pleasure of spending part of my day with James Washington III (Jurassic James). James guided me through the Faberge exhibit and the Morian Hall of Paleontology. I originally went to the Museum to see the Faberge exhibit, which was fantastic and thanks to James I learned so much and was in awe of the craftsmanship. But James blew me away with his tour of the Morian Hall of Paleontology. He was so knowledgeable, funny, and interesting. It was an incredible experience that I can’t stop talking about.”

“Our tour guide James did an outstanding job at keeping the tour on the Hall of Ancient Egypt both entertaining and informative.”

-Diego Pliego
