Lots of fun for anyone interested in geology and/or paleontology. It’s free and open to the public. The only downside is that it’s on campus and there’s no nearby visitor parking.

We learnt so much about Wyoming. So interesting. The museum is little and doesn't take long but impressive fossils and a great timeline display on the second floor.

Fantastic dinosaurs!!! This is a small museum but well worth your time. On the second floor was an amazing time line showing how water covered various parts of our country in different time periods. The bearded lady exhibit was very interesting!
