Hosted by the Museum of Western Colorado, Dinosaur Journey Museum features hands-on, interactive exhibits. See real fossils, cast skeletons and robotic reconstructions of various dinosaurs. It’s located in Fruita, which is part of the Dinosaur Diamond, a scenic driving tour of the Southwest.
One of the newest exhibits is a large Triceratops skull, possibly one of the largest ever found. There’s also a working laboratory where fossils are prepared for display, a simulated earthquake ride and a “quarry site” where kids can uncover actual dinosaur bones.
