The site looks nice from my perspective, although I seem some issues that should be addressed:

1) The dinosaur on the right has some sort of copyright on it : "something" I can’t quite make it out. I assume because you’re designing a professional site that you have the necessary license to use this image? If not, I would either get a new one, or erase that white copyright. Spend some time on the pixel level in PS and fix that up.

2)I agree with the tails being cut off – if you can get those in there, I think it would go a long way for that image.

3) When you use the drop shadows, you have to pay attention to the hypothetical light sources that are suppose to be producing them.For example you have shadows on the left and bottoms of most boxes, but not on the menu, or down near exhibit features etc. I would try not to use those shadows to divide areas of the page, such as below the menu and between your two footer areas.

4) The <h1> tag could use another font. Put in front of the square background, that font looks a little…odd…too blocky in my opinion. Maybe try "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode" or something. I’m not saying Arial is a bad font, because I use it as well, I’m just saying at that size I don’t think it’s the best.

5) Have you considered rounding the corners on your content boxes?

6) I would jazz up the " online community text" at the top. Maybe use images for each community site (ie, use a css sprite – 1 image to keep things quick and easy).
