  • This wasn't on our radar initially for a stop on our cross-country trip, but we saw it advertised when we were in Thermopolis. It was so much more in depth than I would have imagined. Very educational...  more »
  • It's seriously an amazing exhibit. Well worth going out of the way to see. Far and away better then any other dinosaur exhibit we've seen. It's not at all surprising they were voted #1 dinosaur museum...  more »
  • The Dinosaur Center was !so! much more than we expected. We thought there'd be a few exhibits and a gift shop. Actually, it's a comprehensive set of exhibits and displays, very interesting and well-do...  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.
  • Valuable asset to the community! One of the best dinosaur museums I have ever been to. The specimens were awesome and they have a great gift shop also!
  • If I could give it more stars, I would. Our family thoroughly enjoyed visiting here. We were given an excellent tour and enjoyed all of the exhibits and the dinosaurs. Tremendous place to visit and affordable.
  • 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!!!!!
