BIG BONES - Dinosaur Museum

NEW exhibits, NEW look, NEW activities!
The museum is undergoing major changes, so if you have visited before, come on back, and if you haven’t been to the museum before, you’ll find a great place for paleo fun.

It doesn’t matter if you are a kid, or an adult, this is a cool museum.  The Dickinson Dinosaur Museum not only has dinosaurs that were living a quiet dinosaur life, they have dinosaurs that had all out fights and the scars to prove it. 

Dr. Denver Fowler, Museum Curator, is collecting and bringing new fossils to the museum.  Discovered west of Dickinson, Warwick’s Duck, an Edmontosaurus, a large duckbill dinosaur, was one of the unlucky ducks.  Multiple scars show there must have been a fight to the end.
