We went here on August 28, 2014 and enjoyed it immensely. The staff seemed a bit disorganized before we actually got to the quarry. Once there though we had a great time. . Our guide Colby was fun and informative. He taught us how to look for fossils. They give you a pallet and tools to use for the fossils.... More

Enjoyed our adventure finding fish fossils today! Went with my son and daughter this morning. We found quite a few pieces of fish and some whole fish. Were allowed to take 8 per paid person. My daughter is 11, I did not have to pay for her which was nice. She just helped us and did not get 8 of... More

We decided to go to Ulrich's today because everyone has said that they have the best fossil fish. Though they are very expensive compared to other places, we figured it was worth it because this would likely be our only time ever coming here to get our own fish! The weather this week was pretty terrible so the shale was... More

This is a great place to get a true feeling of being an archeologist. The fossils here are premium and the help given is second to none. Following the trip to the quarry they are helpful in getting the fish out of the rock layers. You will find many different species of fish and the joy or recovering them. If... More

The Ulrich family are one of the earliest quarriers of fossils in the Fossil Butte area. Many of their finds are in major museum and university collections. The displays are for sale and vary as time goes on. If you're lucky Mr. or Mrs. Ulrich will visit the retail room and you'll get to chat with some very interesting people.

Must do. The gallery has wonderful specimens to see. Out of my budget. Quarry trip worth every bit of the money. Fossils mean so much more when you find them yourself. I will go back and do this again. Mr. Ulrich is 90 and his wife is only slightly younger. Not sure what that will mean for the future of... More

Since the government shut down had the Fossil Butte monument closed down at least we were able to see the beautiful fossils that were on display at the gallery. Of course they were all for sale but a bit pricey.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the quarry. We wish we didn't live so far away because we want to go again!! We are planning on coming... More

The quality of the fossil's here are outstanding they have a very large selection. If you talk to the right person some of the prices are negotiable.
