Great museum to explore the ancient world that is now Wyoming. Have a complete Mastodon in the museum and a cool sculpture of a T-Rex outside.

Great mammoth and other ancient remains. Many were found in the past 30 years and locally. Nice stories of their discoveries to go with the displays. And it's free.

This is a great small museum with an impressive collection. Wyoming is home to lots of great fossil sites and the Tate is lucky enough to have some nice specimens. Especially if your kids are into Dino’s, give them a look!

I don't remember there being a charge. I think there was a donation box. I just looked at their website and didn't see an entrance charge. Visit their website and give them a call.

It's free. And they have a donation box if you want to help. They have a mammoth that is great along with so many other things.
