Glenrock Paleontological Museum

506 West Birch Street

Glenrock Paleontological Museum which is located in Glenrock, WY.

In 1994 Sean Smith located a Triceratops skull on Merle Dunham's ranch just outside Glenrock, Wyoming.  Mr. and Mrs. Dunham allowed Sean to excavate the dinosaur as long as the fossil remained in Glenrock for the enjoyment and education of the children.  As a result of their generous donation, the Glenrock Paleon Foundation and Museum were established.

The Glenrock Paleon Museum strives to honor the Dunham legacy by educating children and adults alike about the world of Paleontology and Wyoming's natural history.

Take your kids here! Didn't look like much on the outside but inside it was the best and most informative dinosaur place ever! There was a paleontologist on site and gave my boys the best tour plus showed them how they excavate the bones and fossils from the ground and clean them up too! The boys got to pick out a fossil for free to take home and they picked part of the frill from a stegasarous! The best part was it was only 5 dollars for all of us to get in!

This place was so much fun! It's a small museum but it is packed with significant fossil history. Our tour guide was great fun, she was so incredibly warm and knowledgeable and it was clear that everyone there (it is a volunteer run place, and VERY well run!) has a passion for the fossils and their place in history. I cannot recommend this place enough.

Go see the Bone Bitties the local volunteers do a great job with this museum. It is worth your time, and only 5 dollars.

Super friendly staff, awesome experience! If you live in the area, they have a huge yard sale behind the museum every summer at Deer Creek Days. If you volunteer here, and if they aren't busy, they might let you help clean the fossils. 😉
