The Dinosaur Quarry Visitor Center is a wonderful place where you and your tour companions can go to have a good time. This spot is mountainous, and the paths of this spot are ideal for practicing hiking. There are a lot of steep areas here which make the hiking sessions challenging for many. At this place, a lot of excavation has been done and due to that 1,400 fossilized bones of dinosaur were discovered here. Still, the place carries 150,000,000 years old fossils which the tourists can touch also. It is the reason Dinosaur Quarry Visitor Center offers a great touring and educational experience to all.

Dinosaur Quarry Reviews & Ratings

  • I have been coming to Jensen since I was a small boy, I have visited Dinosaur 20 or more times in my life and every time I am awe struck. Looking back in time at the bones and considering these creatures were walking exactly where you are is very exciting. It is especially fun for kids. I absolutely recommend coming and seeing the bones, and then take a shorts trip up the road and see petroglyphs and Josie's cabin. Trust me you will not be disappointed.

  • Absolutely breathtaking... Took my 6 y/o to see the quarry and he totally geeked out. After listening to him talking about all the dinosaurs we received a fun little workbook for the kids. When we sat down and finished the book, we walked to a nearby ranger and was given a badge. Super fun!

  • This is an amazing national treasure. This is probably one of the only places you will see dinosaur foods in a rock wall. Quick tram ride to an air conditioned building.

  • Be sure to do the junior ranger program! We had a great time seeing the quarry. You start at the visitor's center and ride the shuttle up to the quarry. The rangers are super helpful and make the programs extremely fun for the kids.

  • Clean bathrooms, nice staff, informative signs. Was a nice place to wait for the bus to the fossil wall.
