Discover dinosaurs through hands-on exhibits and personalized tours.

Just outside of the suburbs, explore the small museum with big discoveries. Inside the modest log and stone cabin is a glimpse at the ancient life that once roamed Colorado. The exhibition is designed to be toured with a highly-trained guide. Encounter Jurassic giants like the bones of the first Stegosaurus and Apatosaurus . Inspect skulls of T. rex and Triceratops. Come face-to-face with a giant raptor. Coming in 2023, a newly renovated Ice Age exhibition with new specimens. Help clean real fossils and more as you explore the museum with your guide.

A Morrison Museum visit is the perfect orientation to Red Rocks Park and Dinosaur Ridge. Plan for 90 minutes to explore the museum and grounds. Online tickets are available at
