If the volunteer is willing to walk with you and explain it all to you, it is fabulously interesting. He even took us in to meet Dr. Bob, who was using a fine needle type instrument to remove sandstone from a fossil! I learned more in an hour and a half than all of grade school about natural history!!!

Definitely do the tour! This museum is small, but world renowned. You will learn about the newest discoveries in paleontology. Also, take the beautiful little path behind the museum for a scenic hike.

From Our Editors

Chances are a Tyrannosaurus would bite if you tried to pet it. Thankfully, that's not the case at Morrison Natural History Museum, where a Tyrannosaurus skull is one of many safe fossils that visitors are encouraged to touch. The paleontology museum's 3,000 square feet of exhibition space is full of other dino bones discovered in Colorado, from the first stegosaurus fossils to the tracks of an infant dinosaur. A peek into the museum's Paleo Lab reveals scientists conducting research in real time, while trips to the dig pit let kids experience the rush of unearthing their own fossils.

Not everything at the Morrison is about fossils. Among the Ice Age exhibit's bones of saber-toothed cats, for instance, glass displays teem with live reptiles, amphibians, and a wooly mammoth stretching after a 7,000-year nap. Educational programs likewise blend dinosaur-focused activities and interactions with live creatures, such as birthday parties that include the chance to pet a live snake.
