Morrison Natural History Museum, Morrison

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.

The museum is small but so very packed with amazing things to explore. Can't wait to check out the dinosaur ridge!
  • Our guide Young Mr. Todd has so much knowledge had no problems answering questions from all. When talking to the children he always treated them with respect. There wad no silly questions & Mr. Todd always told the children their answer to he's questions were good. EXCELLENT place to take the family.
