Come by to the Museums of Western Colorado where we have available deals for the Dinosaur Journey and Museum of the West exhibits. Whether you want to go on a date, take a special friend or family member, you can choose to go to one or both exhibits. Or if you're on a family vacation or need a little activity for the kids on the weekends! An avid dinosaur fan? Welcome to the Dinosaur Journey where you learn about the history of life in western Colorado and surrounding areas with real fossils, cast skeletons, and robotic reconstructions of dinosaurs. Dinosaur Journey is an active research institution that contributes on a yearly basis to our knowledge of ancient North America. The Museum of the West now offers a thousand years of history that can be experienced. "Ride" in a stagecoach, "fly" a 1958 Cessna from Walker Field or gaze upon an ancient cup and ladle from the Ancestral Pueblo. Study Ute and Fremont rock art, see the real firearms that outlaws used, sit in a one-room schoolhouse and visit the Pastime saloon to experience western Americana at its best.
