This a small, fun museum. The 9 & 10 year olds with us enjoyed the hands on stagecoach ride, the climb in airplane, and especially the old time school room where they could play. I like the Uranium mine and the mystery solving display. Be sure to climb the tower!

Pretty small museum but full of dedicated work by a ton of experts. Animated dinosaurs are great for the kids. History is great for intelligent adults (nerds). Groupon is a great bargain for a small group. We went on a Sunday so there was no work being done in the observation area. That would have been interesting to see.

We spent 2 hours in the Dinosaur Museum today. Our grandkids were 6, 4, and 3 and no one wanted to leave. The example of the earthquake was fascinating and the dinosaur's were great.... Watch out for the one that spits!

So much fun! The Groupon was nice, but we would gladly have paid full price.

From Our Editors

Before taking lessons in a one-room schoolhouse, a visitor hops aboard a stagecoach, interviews a worker at a uranium mine, examines authentic adobe pottery, and heads inside a saloon. Such is the scene at Museum of the West, one of the three campuses of the Museum of Western Colorado where curators eschew the notion of “look, but don’t touch.” From the interactive labs at the Dinosaur Journey Museum to the live demonstrations of early 20th-century life at the Cross Orchards Historic Site—whose buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places—the staff encourages its guests to get up close and personal with the region’s past.
