The Epic Park In North Carolina Where You Can Take Home 23-Million-Year-Old Fossils

If you are a fan of history and would say that, theoretically, you ‘dig the past,’ then now you can say that you ‘dig the past’ and mean it – literally. There’s a little-known park in North Carolina where you can dig for, and keep, the fossils you find.

Have you been to the Aurora Fossil Museum and/or did you know about the Fossil Park? We’d love to know what fossils you dug up. Aurora Fossil Museum is located at 400 W Main Street in Aurora, North Carolina. They’re open Monday – Saturday 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and on Sundays from March 1 through Labor Day 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Check their offical website for holiday closings and special announcements.
