Overview
More
The Bighorn Basin GeoScience Center is dedicated to the study of the Basin’s natural resources and to the promotion of geoscience and local historical and educational activities. We offer exhibits and educational materials for educators, geoscientists, tourists and the people of Wyoming. The Big Horn Basin Geoscience Center recently opened the Museum of Ancient Life in downtown Greybull to house and display some of our fossils and reproductions in the context of the environment that was prevalent in the time frame the animals existed. The museum features a 40 foot mural depicting the landscape, flora, and fauna of the Bighorn Basin of Wyoming as we understand it was about 150 million years ago. Stop by to enjoy our displays and learn more about the geological and paleontological history of our area.

Just a little place on main street is the GeoScience Center. The gentleman inside provided more information than you would ever want to know. Problem was he wanted to share so much that we really didn't have a chance to 'look'. I understand he wants...More

While traveling from Cody we stopped here and were amazed by the collection of fossils and Dinosaur finds! I would highly recommend stopping here and bringing the kids too! Great gift shop with lots to choose from too!

Great place for the inner archeologist in anyone. Friendly staff, educational materials, hands-on activities (microscopes!), and great new location.

To followup on an earlier post, this museum has moved across the street to a new location. The new space is really well done. Lots of great dinosaur and rock samples from the region. An excellent collection and a beautiful space with lots of natural...More

Can't review really except to say not open, no hours posts, sign changed, seems less like a geo center and more like part time trinket shop.

NOT OPEN - NEVER open. Don't bother. We really hoped it would provided information, but that is not to be. Don't waste your time.

This is one you can skip. Mainly just a collection of things donated or loaned by individuals. No real organization or structure to the exhibits. I have seen better museums in even smaller towns.

Appreciated the hands-on approach of the museum. The museum encourages children to become interested in geology, by allowing them the trust and respect to handle precious fossils. I appreciated this concept so much! Also, the knowledge and expertise of the owner was better than any...More
