Just outside of Grand Junction Colorado you’ll find yourself in the heart of Colorado dinosaur country. A great place to start learning about these fascinating prehistoric creatures is at the Museum of Western Colorado’s Dinosaur Journey Museum in nearby Fruita, Colorado.
As you enter the museum you’ll be startled by growling, screeching and roaring. This is no quiet, sedate museum. As your eyes adjust to the dimmer light you’ll see huge skeletons and moving life-sized dinosaur replicas in natural looking surroundings. Children love interacting with the displays, making the dinosaurs move and learning the names of the creatures. They’ll be sure to find their favorite dinosaur there.
