Dickinson Dinosaur Museum

Great place to take the kids or just yourself for an afternoon visit. They have this awesome "sand box" with a topographical map projected onto it, and as you move the sand the map updates in real time. I had more fun with it than the kids!

Dickinson Dinosaur Museum

The Dickinson Dinosaur Museum is now open year-round and features some impressive dinosaur displays, with new exhibits coming in the autumn of 2017.

Dinosaur Statues

Outside of the Dakota Dinosaur Museum there are a couple of great dinosaur statues: a life-size Triceratops and a welded-metal Pachycephalosaurus. Unfortunately, the museum itself is a bit of a letdown. They do have a pretty impressive mineral collection though.
