30,000 + Fossils
With a world-class collection of over 30,000 fossils that continues to grow each summer, we now house one of the largest upper Cretaceous dinosaur collections in the United States! Come see our collection and learn how fossils are excavated, processed and preserved.
We were recently recognized in the Journal of Paleontological Sciences for our work on fossils from the Hell Creek and Lance Formations, which are some of the most fossil-rich bonebeds in the United States, located in Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota. In the article, which discusses a census of approximately 65 universities and institutions with dinosaur bone databases, we were named, along with the University of California Museum of Paleontology and Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, as providing “the most detail in the easiest and most aesthetic format.” Our museum, in particular, was distinguished for providing “photographs, historical and geologic context for just about every specimen in the large and mostly complete database.”
