Welcome to the website for the Big Horn Basin Dinosaur and Geoscience
Museum. We aren’t a brick-and-mortar building but rather a group of local
paleontology and geology enthusiasts who want to create a dinosaur museum in
Greybull, Wyoming. Working with the local Greybull Museum, our organization is
seeking funding to acquire museum-quality casts of some of the most spectacular
dinosaurs in the world that were found right in our own backyard.
All of the major fossil discoveries made in our area, including Big Al 2, the world’s
most complete Allosaurus (a large meat-eating dinosaur that was the distant
cousin to the Tyrannosaurs rex) and “Sarah/Sophie” one of the three most
complete Stegosaurs (plant-eating dinosaurs with large boney plates on its back
and spikes on its tail) reside in some of the best dinosaur museums in the world,
but not here in Big Horn County. However, we are working to change that.
As a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, we are dedicated to bringing back at least
a part of the science and discoveries that have made our area famous amongst
paleontologists. We hope, as you visit our website, that you can imagine some of
the ancient Jurassic world that our dinosaurs and ancient marine reptiles once
lived in and appreciate the beauty and scientific importance of these discoveries.
Please join us in helping to bring back a part of what our area has lost, and
consider supporting our efforts to educate people of their significance and to
expand our collection of fossils and casts and to find a bigger home for their
display. Help us “Bring’em Home.”
