“Great Place to Rock Hound”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

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 you do not have time to go to the quarry pick up one of their kits take it home and enjoy the discovery in the comfort of home. This is an amazing project for a classroom study, Real hands on exploration at a reasonable cost. I took several kits home with me and had difficult locating the fish in the rock. i sent them pictures and they were more than willing to send me new kits since the rock I had had the fish more deeply embedded than normal. I opted to keep what I had and work with them and was rewarded wit h excellent specimens.

“One of the premiere dealers of fish fossils”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

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.

“Fossil Quarry Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

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 the quarry. Hopefully it doesn't shut down to private commercial collection only.

“Very interesting stuff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

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.
