Nestled into the hillside of Qinglong Mountain Geopark in China is a museum devoted entirely to displaying dinosaur eggs. Designed by architects from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, the museum's abstract shape is dictated entirely by the topography of the hillside and the location of the dinosaur eggs themselves.

While seeing dinosaur fossils in natural history museums is common, the Qinglong Mountain Geopark museum is interesting in that it shows the dinosaur eggs precisely as they were found. Rather than unearthing the ova and putting them into a museum in a big city, the eggs in this museum are left in the ground -- only partially unearthed -- and spotlighted so that attendees can get a good look at them.
