The College is nice place to stop and look around. they have some very good exhibits, and it is Free! The staff has worked hard to keep the Museum up. Need to go for an indoor walk, then check out the College.

I read great reviews before heading to the museum, but was greatly disappointed! We took 5 adults and 7 kids ages newborn to 15. I'd say this was not an activity greater towards us. I felt like while yes they're were a few dinosaurs cool to look at and learn about, 90% of the museum seemed like wall decorations for... More

For a community college to have such amazing displays is wonderful for the residents of Sweetwater county. From Huge rebuilt dinosaurs, to museum quality showcases! Then add to that the Bookstore has a whole gift shop like area with lots of dino stuff...from hats to books! WONDERFUL. On your way out hit their cappocino stand....it has a GOOD caramel macchiato!!

What a find, just a few feet off I 80, in the student center of Western Wyoming CC. It has displays of 5 or 6 dinosaurs including a huge T.Rex inside a glass enclosed building overlooking where the dinosaur's bones were discovered. Also have a few fossil remains of turtles, lizards and fish which are fascinating. No charge and is... More

This exhibit is completely worth stopping for. There is no required charge, however they ask for a donation to cover the cost of guidebook printing. The exhibits are well documented and extensive. You will also see the college buildings and admire the stunning views from the campus. There is well priced food and beverage available in the college cafe.

The museum provides examples of the prehistoric history of Western Wyoming. The exhibits are very interesting for the whole family.

Very nice informative brochure to direct around the campus. But times that building is open is not very traveler friendly especially in the summer when it is closed on Friday and weekends.

Nothing outstanding here; mainly deals with very local events, such as an old timer's club. Ho-hum! Not worth the time to stop

I hope the students who attend this community college appreciate their good fortune - at least in terms of physical plant; I know nothing about the quality of the education offered. The main campus building seamlessly integrates a natural-history museum into its interior spaces, with an emphasis on paleontology. One large fossil perches just outside the student store (where I...
