The Museum of Jurassic Technology calls itself "an educational institution dedicated to the advancement of knowledge and the public appreciation of the Lower Jurassic"; the relevance of the term "Lower Jurassic" to the museum's collections is left uncertain and unexplained.

The museum's collection includes a mixture of artistic, scientific, ethnographic, and historic, as well as some unclassifiable exhibits, and the diversity of its offerings evokes the cabinets of curiosities that were the 16th-century predecessors of modern natural history museums.

Visitors have described the attraction as an "anti-museum," a "museum about museums," a "separate reality" and a satire of museums.
