Wyoming Dinosaur Center boasts many mounted skeletons of dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures, in addition to fossils from across the state and the world. You will be able to take a peek into the preparation lab, where you can watch palaeontologists work their way through the past. Visit active dinosaur dig sites only minutes from the museum on a guided tour, or sign up for a Dig for a Day or Shovel Ready and experience palaeontology firsthand.

  • This is a fantastic dinosaur museum with a wide array of specimens! I highly recommend the dig for a day option. We were able to dig at an actual dig site, tour the museum, and see the bone lab. Our guide was Jodi (SP?) and she was truly Amazing. Jodi is passionate about dinosaurs and is extremely intelligent. She also answered all of our questions and helped my young child find fossils. We hope to come back soon!
  • I was really impressed with this dinosaur museum! So well curated. They have real bones from around the world, and packed into this building, they have so many different dinosaurs! It's amazing. We also did the dig and had a blast. Found a bone, which was awesome. It rained, so we got to come back to the lab and clean up some bones, which was cool too. It was a great experience.
