They're long gone now, but you can see five life-size replicas of the hulking creatures at Western Wyoming Community College in Rock Springs. Although archaeologists have found fossils of these monsters all over Wyoming, the most prized specimens were taken to the big natural history museums in the east. So in 1989, locals began a fund raising campaign to return Wyoming's dinosaurs back to where they first roamed.

In addition to the five dinosaurs, the museum displays several wall-mounted fossils of fish, huge leaves and reptiles that have been discovered in the area. You can also see interesting artifacts such as prehistoric pottery, smaller fossils and items associated with the earliest known humans who lived in the vicinity.
