We were on a dig with the museum at Casper College and on a rainy day, were lucky enough to be able to tour the museum with the curator. Awesome

Nice skeletons and parts of dinosaurs with wonderful history. Very educational and the children enjoyed playing in the Augmented Reality Sandbox making hills, mountains and water. It doesn't take much time to walk around the displays and is worth seeing if you pass through Laramie....More

Lots of fun for anyone interested in geology and/or paleontology. It’s free and open to the public. The only downside is that it’s on campus and there’s no nearby visitor parking.

The full size dinosaur skeleton is well worth seing as well as the T Rex replica outside. All of the other exhibits are interesting, Children, especcially love to see the dinosaurs.

We learnt so much about Wyoming. So interesting. The museum is little and doesn't take long but impressive fossils and a great timeline display on the second floor.

Nice little university museum. If you like fossils, especially dinosaurs this is a must see quick stop. Right on the campus of the university of Wyoming. Closed on Sunday.

The main attraction at the museum is the #Allosaurus#. It has been featured in the BBC documentary. All age groups can comprehend the real dimension's of the dinosaurs without much of an oral explanation.

Fantastic dinosaurs!!! This is a small museum but well worth your time. On the second floor was an amazing time line showing how water covered various parts of our country in different time periods. The bearded lady exhibit was very interesting!
