So, Id been before - late 80's with kids and wanted to return. Wow, more specimens found in 1990's. This is a must for inquiring minds. Educational and inspiring displays inside with suggested hiking trails & petroglyphs for further discovery.

Take the shuttle bus from the visitor centre up to the viewing wall and exhibition. Spend time there then walk back down hill via the trail back to the visitor centre to see dinosaur fossils and ancient rock paintings.

This is the same as the Dinosaur National Monument. The National Monument includes a huge park in which the Quarry is located. The Quarry is a must see if you are interested in dinosaur fossils.
