Creatures from the depths
The terrifying monsters that occupy the imaginations of children
The reptiles that once reigned without mercy
The demons that once roamed the hot jungles of a changing world
When dinosaurs ruled the Earth
The Wyoming Dinosaur Center is located at the top of a hill in Thermopolis, Wyoming. At $10 per person, it can be a bit pricey, but the unattractive warehouse is home to a surprisingly extensive collection of fossils, including the largest skeleton found in Wyoming and the only complete archaeopteryx fossil on display in North America. For $100 ($80 for kids), you can help out on an actual dinosaur dig near the Wind River Canyon during the summer, and they have fun activities for kids all year round. Worth a look if you’re into paleontology.
