World class museum in a small cozy town! It's a great place to spend an afternoon learning about the animals that once roamed the area

I am no archaeologist, but this is a well designed, entertaining, and not too expensive place to take the entire family. I'm a computer buff that is hard to impress, and I absolutely loved this place! They dedicated a little too much space to the souvenir shop, but a must if you're trying to experience the West and all it... More

It was an excellent small museum. Very informative, very bright, very well laid out, very clean. It is a good one for all ages, our group ages were between 75 and 12 and we all enjoyed it. Nice gift shop, also.

Not a huge museum, but our kids really enjoyed it. Next time, we want to sign the kids up for the half or full day field trip to where they dig.

I have always heard great things about this museum so when my husband and I found ourselves in Thermopolis for the weekend, we decided to go. When we walked in there was only one person working at the desk and we were ignored for a good 3-4 minutes while she helped another couple "shop" the items under the glass display... More

This is a really good dinosaur museum. They have a lot of fossils and information about them. It's not very kid friendly, but great for couples. They have a good gift shop and the staff is friendly. A must see when your in town.

Have to say the museum itself was wonderful, would recommend it to anyone, old or young. The only thing I would suggest is, make sure what you are told is what you receive. We had paid to have our Secretary Conference registration at the museum, with the understanding that we could view the museum. As the ladies arrived and started... More

Lots of different dinosaurs and an imaginative layout. Loads of info really well presented. There's also a window to look in to see the palaeontologists working (also children there, so it must be possible to get a kids experience ticket?). Lots of fantastic fossils there as well. It's not cheap though - $10 to get in and then another $8... More

Wow....that's all I can say wow! You've got to see this one without fail. They have a Brontosaur fossil on display that is truly awesome. From the tip of its nose to the tip of its tail....60 feet. From the floor to its back 30 feet. Estimated weight 20-30 tons. Now folks that is some lizard!!! And that's not all... More
