Morrison Natural History Museum is the "small museum with big discoveries." The first giant Jurassic dinosaurs were found at Morrison, Colorado in 1877. Active research of local Jurassic rocks have yielded famous baby dinosaur footprints that have been featured in 'Smithsonian' magazine and media outlets around the world. These finds nourish touchable exhibits that are designed to be toured with a guide.

A visit is the perfect orientation to the Red Rocks and Dinosaur Ridge areas.

  • We had a tour by Hannah. She was phenomenal with the children, she gave them the unique attention they deserve. This museum is set up with amazing fossils and more. We felt like we were treated with kindness and respect from the second we walked in the door. I highly recommend this Museum.
  • We found this place on a whim and we're SO glad we did! It's excellent! The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. There are some super rare fossils here. Definitely worth the trip!
