During Dig for a Day, visitors of all ages will get to dig for bones in one of the active dinosaur dig sites, search an ancient sea for marine fossils, and enjoy a full guided tour of the museum!
Wyoming Dinosaur Center staff and visitors have removed more than 14,000 bones from the excavation sites – all within a 10-minute drive of the Museum. Most fossils are from long-necked sauropods (Camarasaurus, Diplodocus, Apatosaurus), but we have also found an abundance of Allosaurus teeth at all of our active quarries.
It’s so important for kids to learn about the past, and there are many places in Wyoming where kids will not only learn but enjoy and have a fun time. It’s easier for kids to learn while having fun, and these 10 Best Places to Learn About Dinosaurs and Wyoming’s Past will do the job.
