morrison natural history museum


I spent my last day of spring break exploring the Golden area (again) with my sister and dad. We went to the Morrison Natural History Museum, and I would definitely recommend a visit! The last picture is Kevin, Marsh’s Apatosaurus, whose body (the rest of it) is at the Peabody Museum at Yale. Also, I got to help prep Kevin (all visitors do!)

Is there a “dino-maniac” in your life that has a birthday coming up? Our two-hour long birthday program consists of an hour-long Museum tour with hands-on demonstrations with short discussions about local fossils, rocks, and reptiles. Participants touch real and cast fossils, pet a snake, chip stone from dinosaur bone, paint a small cast of a dinosaur track, and more.
