There are a lot of wonderful fossils, great information! But there is a lot of reading to do, and a person wants to take time to absorb the information! When you stand beside the bigger dinosaurs they... read more »
Many dinosaur museums are nice, but few are at a location where (for a few extra $$$) they will drive you out to the locations where they are still digging fossilized bones out of the ground. We were ... read more »
Well, they have the only Archaeopteryx specimen in North America, so that alone is worth the price of admission. But above and beyond that, it's a world-class dinosaur exhibit, and it's in funky littl... read more »
First of all, driving through the canyon to Thermopolis itself is probably worth 5 stars, and this place is the reason I did that so they're off to a great start. That said, upon arrival you'll be even more glad you came. They really do have a lot of dinosaur packed into a small space (although I understand they are in the process of remodeling & expanding). The building itself isn't much to look at from the outside, and odds are in a lot of ways it's smaller than you probably expect, but trust me you won't be disappointed. They pack in a lot of amazing artifacts, many of them real actual fossils & not replicas. I would absolutely come here again even if they didn't change a thing--and based on their remodel plans on display they are only changing for the better, so I really look forward to coming back here once those are complete.
LOVED THIS PLACE!!! I was not expecting much and I was absolutely wowed! This is a great museum and well worth the small fee. I wish I'd had a bit more time to spend there, but we were on a schedule. I would highly recommend this museum for anyone interested in history, in general, and especially those who love dinosaurs. GREAT PLACE!!
idk why im doing this: I JUST LOVE DINOS!!!!!
Fun and affordable family oriented museum. Didn't do the dig tour or any of that but really enjoyed it.
kids had a blast, crowded with tourists
