Dinosaur Journey Temporary Exhibit

May 17, 2019 - September 15, 2019

From the days of fossil hunting by horseback, to modern 3D laser scanning…

discover the fossils that made the Grand Valley a hotspot for paleontology.

Explore the fossil discoveries from the Grand Valley that pushed science forward and broke through barriers. From the discovery of Brachiosaurus in 1900, the largest dinosaur known at the time, to the first ankylosaur from the Jurassic Period, to the first evidence of dinosaur mating dances, Fantastic Fossils of the Grand Valley brings our local discoveries together in cohesive exhibition that highlights not only the fossils, but their impact on science and the scientists who found them. Fantastic Fossils of the Grand Valley allows visitors to engage with science, tangibly… dress up like a paleontologist and write a letter home from the field.
