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!

A must see when in town. They have the largest mammoth found in the US, a Columbian Mammoth that is totally awesome. It is one of a kind.

Great visit and extremely interesting displays. Bones and interesting dioramas explain about what was then and why.

Like bones and stones from 165 million years ago? If you do, stop in. This museum is small but good. You can learn a lot in a couple of hours. It’s up close and personal so touch and feel and learn.

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.
