Formerly operating as Dakota Dinosaur Museum (1992-2015), the newly renamed Badlands Dinosaur Museum is undergoing a total overhaul of exhibits and facilities.

We are busy designing and installing new exhibits, featuring new fossils discovered by our field crew and prepared in our public-viewing laboratory. Our research and collections areas are expanding too. Please stop by and see what we are up to! There is always something new!
