If so, you will be happy to know that the Centennial State is not only a mecca in terms of museums, exhibitions, and fossil digs, but also houses what is considered to be one of the best dinosaur museums in the country:
Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center!
Located in Woodland Park, the Dinosaur Resource Center spans an incredible 20,000 square feet and has been rated the second-best dinosaur museum in the country by both America's Best and Top 10.
Featuring 12,000 square feet of dinosaur displays alone, there is so much to see and do at the Center, beginning with the replicas of marine reptiles, pterosaurs, and other dinosaurs.
Included with admission is a tour of the museum, which is led by a knowledgable guide who will answer all of your questions and tell the tale of these extinct creatures.
Do you have any littles in your group? Be sure to take them to the Children’s Learning Center, which is a hands-on area that houses everything from dinosaur poop to a fossil dig site and other specially-curated activities.
After visiting the displays, it is time to check out the Prehistoric Paradise Store, which is chock-full of souvenirs, apparel, toys, and dinosaur-themed gifts.
