My family and I can spend hours here. The kids like to do the seek and find page that they hand out. My son loves to play in the little children's area. The guys that work there are friendly and helpful in answering any questions you have.

The have added the coolest bronze T. rex out front I have ever seen!! The museum is extremely well done, and shows all of the cool fossils that can be found in Wyoming. The people there are the friendliest you will find anywhere, and they have a great little gift shop with t-shirts and all sorts of other cool things.... More
