The Dinosaur Science Museum and Research Center at Southwestern Adventist University is home to more than 20,000 dinosaur bones excavated from the Hanson Ranch of Eastern Wyoming, in partnership with the Hanson Research Station. The bones are excavated, tagged with GPS coordinates, transported, cleaned and mended, and then photographed with a 3d camera. The bones are then stored in the repository at the Dinosaur Science Museum while the photo and the data are uploaded to the University’s dinosaur bone database and map, the only one of its kind in the world.
The Museum is free & open to the public.
