Nothing quite captures our imaginations like Dinosaurs. From Mammoths to T. Rexes, these enormous, prehistoric creatures are fascinating to kids and adults alike. In Wyoming, there are several places where you can see dinos that were dug up from the earth, but nothing is quite as unique as the Tate Geological Museum at Casper College.
The Tate Geological Museum is located on the campus of Casper College, at 125 College Dr., Casper, WY 82601. The GPS will take you to the College Entrance. To find the museum follow these directions: From the base of Casper College, get onto Casper Mountain Road and go south (uphill). Go through the stoplight (wait for it to turn green), continue uphill (south), past the road to the right that leads into the college and then take the next road on the right. The Tate Museum is right in front of you, a bit to the right. Look for the life-size T. rex statue in front of the museum.
The museum is free to the public and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
