While in Rock Springs the exhibit in the West Wyoming Community College is a must see. They have 5 different dinosaurus skeletons, which are amazing because when in Wyoming you expect for them to still walk around.

We were staying right down the street and decided to save this for a Friday when rain was forecast. However, when we went on Friday, were disappointed to see it was closed. Maybe another time.

We loved the amount of displays on site, but our navigators had a hard time following the map in the booklet, so we backtracked a bit. We saw dinosaurs, fossils, the Wiedner Wildlife Museum(which was our favorite because of all of the unusual taxidermied animals),...More
