Discover the paleontological heritage of Colorado nestled within a modest log and stone cabin nestled in the foothills west of Denver. Encounter dinosaurs through hands-on exhibits with personalized tours and activities.

Included with admission, tours encounter Jurassic giants like the remains of the first Stegosaurus. Come face to skull with T. rex and Triceratops. Confront Ice Age beasts. Go behind the scenes into the paleontology lab.

Active research nourishes exhibits which are designed to be toured with a guide to enrich visitor experience. A visit is the perfect orientation to Red Rocks Park and Dinosaur Ridge. Dig deeper into local fossil finds at Morrison Natural History Museum.

Morrison Museum is open daily. A limited number of tickets are available per day. Tickets are available online

Morrison Natural History Museum is located 25 minutes west of downtown Denver in historic Morrison, Colorado at 501 Colorado Highway 8 in south Morrison, one and a half miles north of The Fort restaurant. When visiting, make it a day trip and visit Red Rocks Park, Dinosaur Ridge, Bear Creek Lake Park, and Bandimere Speedway. Take a break and linger in the shops and restaurants of the Town of Morrison.

"The museum is the perfect size for young, inquisitive minds - not overwhelming or time consuming."
