The Museum is a wonderful adult & child activity. Many specimens & some hands on activities for kids. Go on a dig w a paleontologist for an extra fee. One of the only archaeopteryx fossils in North America is here. A giant Supersaurus covers the entire length of the space. T-Rex, Stegosaurus, raptors, you name it. They are here.

If you have children, this is a must see. The Wyoming Dinosaur Museum is an amazing experience with all sorts of dinosaurs and a lot of history. There is a gift shop as well. Don't miss this museum.

You don't expect to find a really nice museum in Hole-in-the-Wall Wyoming, so this was a surprise. THe dinosaur skeletons were a pretty good representation of the family, and although there were weren't a huge number, there were certainly more than most large museums have. Many of their fossils are replicas, but I had rather see a replica than none... More

We weren't sure what to expect, but this museum has a LOT of incredible fossils, bones and reproductions. The reproductions don't outshine the real skeletons and fossils. This museum has a lot of serious stuff!

First thing was a dirt road to get there second a metal building. Only a few dino displays and it seems that their efforts are spent in trying to sell you some thing. Sorry but it wasn't worth it.

Not worth the money. Me and my family will never go back again. The people there not so friendly more on the rude side. Need more dinosaurs there.

I certainly appreciate your candid remarks towards the museum. However, can you be more specific with regards to "Sucks". With over 30 mounted skeletons and hundreds of displays and dioramas, we have a collection that rivals many museums in large cities. Please let us know what the problem was and we will do our best to make adjustments. Thanks, Angie... More

Whilst the museum is heavily publicised, first impressions are not great. The building is a cavernous warehouse on the edge of a small town in Wyoming. However, appearances can be deceptive. The museum houses an impressive array of dinosaurs that would put most museums in the shade. In addition the build up to the dinosaur exhibits is fascinating outlining the... More

We were trying to go on one of the Museum's all day digs, but unfortunately all the spots were reserved for the day. So, if you want to do this, plan/call ahead to get you a spot. I think it would have been amazing. The museum in itself is full of dinosaurs and other interesting artifacts. Well worth the $10/person... More
