What is there to do?

Who loves dinosaurs....because we certainly do! What better way to check out these amazing creatures of the past than to visit a center completely dedicated to them!

Wyoming Dinosaur Center has a HUGE collection of fossils, life forms, and other artifacts that date back all the way to the earliest geologic time periods. It's a great way for kids to learn all about the history as they exhibits are in chronological order, so they can really see how the world has evolved over time!

That's the Walk Through Time exhibit, and from ancient life to the rise of the dinosaurs, you can see how they came about.

There are over 200 displays in total across the Wyoming Dinosaur Center, so there is certainly plenty to learn!

Of course, we couldn't write about the museum without mentioning the dinosaurs themselves! The central hall is like going back in time to the prehistoric periods, with dozens of full-size mounted skeletons, as well as over 20 dinosaurs!

Kids - what is your favorite kind of dinosaur? Can you recognize the skeletons there? 

There is a specimen of the only archaeopteryx in North America, "Stan" the 35 foot T-Rex, a triceratops, and the amazing "Jimbo" - a Supersaurus. Kids, do you know why he's called a Supersaurus? Because he's one of the largest dinosaurs that ever existed!

Get ready to get back in time with these amazing creatures - it's certainly an experience kids will take a lot away from!
