This unique dinosaur destination is both a museum and a working excavation site. The Center contains an outstanding collection of dinosaur exhibits, including large complete skeleton mounts of Triceratops and others. There is also a working fossil lab on site.
After you've finished exploring the exhibits, get out and see an actual dig in progress. The Wyoming Dinosaur Center is located on over 730 acres of Morrison and Cloverly formation bone beds. Air-conditioned buses take visitors from the museum to the bone beds where dinosaurs are being excavated by paleontologists. Many of these experts are willing to answer questions as they work.
Museum admission is free, making it a super deal for dino lovers. Plan to spend plenty of time here -- it's well worth it. The gift shop is also particularly great for souvenirs. You'll spend plenty of time there as well! There is a restaurant in the Museum, but it gets very crowded during peak tourist season. Tip: Plan to vist restaurants off the Mall area for shorter lines and lower prices.
