Good small museum

I enjoy geology, so I enjoyed this museum. Though small, you could spend a couple of hours looking at and reading the informative exhibits. I liked it, and it's free.

This is likely they smallest museum I have ever been to. There are some interesting things to see, but keep in mind that it is very small. Not worth going out of your way for, but if you are in the area and have nothing else to do, go spend 30 minutes if you don't have anything else to do.

This is my favorite attraction in Casper. I have been going to the museum for years and they always have new things to see. A person has the chance to see how they clean up the dinosaur bones, see all of the prehistoric bones from the sea and land, and take a tour with a knowledgeable person.

This was just enough to stretch our legs and learn something, too, after driving from Jackson Wyoming to Casper. Very kid friendly, and equally informative for adults. Free, too!

This is an exceptional small museum if you are interested in learning more about Wyoming geology - rocks, gems, and minerals. Great displays.

From a full sized sculpture of T. Rex to the skeleton of Dee the Mammoth This is a great small museum full of specimens and manned by a very knowledgable and friendly staff. Take an hour or two and visit a scientific treasure here in CASPER.

This museum may be small, but the artifacts are amazing and it is not only interesting, but educational. A must see if your are in Casper! Great for all ages.

Do not be fooled by the size of this place. The square footage is no indicator of the quality of the numerous bone and mineral exhibits. "Dee" (The Columbian Mammoth) is the center-piece (and the first thing you see when you come in the door) and an excellent display it is. Hopefully, the curators will be working in the lab... More
