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.

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. 😉
