Museum has big things on display for the public


The Dickinson Museum Center has been busy, and has some new displays for visitors.

The curator of the museum recently put on display a triceratops skull that is more than six- feet long and weighs 1,500 pounds.

He said it may be the biggest one on display in North Dakota.

The museum also unveiled a collection of dinosaur eggs in three separate glass cases.

The purpose of the new exhibits is to give visitors a better understanding of how the creatures evolved.

“It has gone down pretty well. It has been the quiet part of the year with Winter. Hopefully, when we get some bigger crowds in the Summer, people will be surprised by how many new things there are to see,” said Dr. Denver Fowler, curator of Dickinson Museum Center.

Fowler said he is currently working on a new exhibit for the Summer called Claws

The display that will feature feathered raptor birds.
