Wyoming has several dinosaur museums.

That's not surprising considering how much Wyoming has changed over time. This land has transitioned from being at the bottom of a sea to a swamp, an icy landscape, and now a desert with high planes and towering mountains.

The Tate Geological Museum in Casper, Wyoming, located at Casper College, is an easy stop.

There is much to see and learn and they are always digging up more in the area to add to the experience.

Let's step inside and have a quick look around.

The Tate Geological Museum Casper Wyoming

The Tate Geological Museum was founded in 1980 through a gift from Marion and Inez Tate. It was originally designated as the Tate Earth Science Center and Mineralogical Museum. Because ‘geological’ encompasses earth science, mineralogy, and paleontology, the name was changed to the Tate Geological Museum in 2001.

Located on the Casper College campus, the museum is a great resource for the community. Many local schools and groups come to the museum to add to their student's learning experience.

Tate houses a collection of over 6000 fossil and mineral specimens.
